‘Oh Say, Can You Sing’

The “Oh Say, Can You Sing?” competition is officially open. The Pittsburgh Pirates game day events group is now accepting submissions online for the popular “Oh Say, Can You Sing?” National Anthem competition.

Now through Wednesday, Jan. 15, fans can enter at pirates.com/anthem for the opportunity to audition to sing the National Anthem before a 2020 Pirates home game.

The annual competition invites fans to showcase their singing ability and selects one talented winner to sing the National Anthem before a game at PNC Park. Once the entry period expires, a panel of internal judges will choose 10 finalists to audition at the 2020 PiratesFest at PNC Park, with one lucky winner chosen to sing the National Anthem before a game (at an agreed-upon date) in 2020.

There will be no on-site auditions at PiratesFest, as all auditions will take place through the online process with the 10 finalists scheduled to sing in front of Pirates players and other judges on Saturday, Jan. 25, at PNC Park starting at 2 p.m.

Fans wishing to submit an entry should email a video file or a link to a recording of them singing an Acappella version of the National Anthem to NationalAnthem@pirates.com. The link may be upload to sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram (ensure privacy settings on social media sites are turned off to guarantee judges can view content).

With the email, entrants should also be sure to include their name, address, phone number, and email address. A confirmation email will be sent once the entry is received by Pirates staff. PiratesFest, presented by Chick-fil-a Pittsburgh, is an all-day event that takes place at PNC Park on Saturday, Jan. 25, and is free and open to the public.
