By now, fans of the Golden State Warriors are up in the sky with their recent win against the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game 1 of this year’s NBA Finals.
With JR Smith’s unfortunate mistake and Lebron James’ impressive 51-point mark, the game was a real thriller. GSW head coach Steve Kerr couldn’t help but admit that their lucky stars must have been up that time.
But before the game, a Filipina-American singer stole the show by singing the American national anthem.
Nayah Damasen, a 13-year-old singing sensation from San Jose, California might be one of GSW’s “lucky charm.” Whenever the young girl sings, the Warriors win against the Cavaliers.
She last sang the national anthem during the Game 1 of the Finals back in 2015 and the Warriors won against the Cavaliers. This time again, Damasen sang and the Warriors came out happy again.
Damasen revealed with ABS-CBN that her love for singing was influenced by her Filipina grandmother. She went on to Instagram to share how thankful she is for the opportunity, “Words can’t describe how I’m feeling right now! I am so deeply honored that Warriors ask me to sing the National Anthem for The Game 1 NBA Finals at @oraclearena. Thank you #NBAand #Warriors for this amazing opportunity! I am so blessed!”
