16-year-old Marlana VanHoose, who sang the National Anthem before the UK vs Ole Miss women’s game on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012.

The Johnson Central student, who is blind and was born with Cytomegalovirus, got a visit at midcourt from UK Women’s Head Coach Matthew Mitchell before the game.

“It was really moving,” he said. “I told her before tipoff, it really brought tears to my eyes. It was the best performance we’ve ever had here at Memorial Coliseum. What an unbelievable voice on a little bitty girl like that.”
