For the rest of us, it's merely a difficult song to sing. For Catina Mack, it's the only one to sing.

For more than a dozen years, the Sanford resident has made a cottage industry of singing the national anthem -- crisscrossing the state to perform for civic groups, parades and sports teams.

Oh, say, can that Sanford woman sing! -- OrlandoSentinel.com (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment/orl-anthemlady0408jul04,0,4023257.story - broken link)

Wow. I love people who find a life's work from a specific craft or talent--what an interesting way to make a living, and imagine some of the people she's met and places she's been (and will go!)

I love listening to the Star Spangled Banner, but hate it for not being able to join in...it's a wonderfully stirring tune, but just bloody impossible to sing, unless you're a trained coloratura.

Or Catina.
