SANTA ANA, Calif. – March 14, 2013 – Aspiring singers can win a chance to perform the Star Spangled Banner at Fairhaven Memorial Park’s 21st annual Memorial Day Event. March 26 through April 30, Southern California residents are invited to submit a YouTube video link of their rendition of the Anthem. The winner of the “Star Spangled Singer” contest will perform in front of a festive crowd of more than 3,500.

“We are fortunate to serve a community that is filled with talented and patriotic people,” said Marla Noel, president of Fairhaven Memorial Park. “This one-of-a-kind singing contest gives members of the community a chance to participate in the remembrance of those who served valiantly for our country and celebrate the freedoms we’ve gained through their sacrifice.”

Fairhaven’s Memorial Day event is among the largest in Orange County. Guests will enjoy live music, delicious food and a salute to our nation’s past, present and future. The event will be held on Monday, May 27th at Fairhaven Memorial Park, where the contest winner will kick off the festivities.

This marks the second year Fairhaven has held the “Star Spangled Singer” contest. 2012’s contest winner was Jennifer Malman, a 25-year-old Garden Grove resident and avid theatre enthusiast who brought the audience to its feet.
