One local singer said she is getting the opportunity of a lifetime.

She auditioned and now Hayley Watson is singing the national anthem at the Cincinnati Reds baseball game Tuesday.

"It was just amazing I just started crying and was like are you serious just completely like not expecting it at all," Watson said.

Two weeks after she auditioned she got the call.

"When I answered the phone I really wasn’t quite sure who it was he was like this is Cory with the Cincinnati Reds and I was like uhh are you seriously and he asked me to do the national anthem I said definitely, definitely you know I would do it and I just started crying I was overwhelmed," Watson said.

Watson has been singing since she was 14 years old and has opened six time for Neal McCoy and various other country singers.
