As Godinez Fundamental High School Chamber Singers stepped into the Angel Stadium, a ray of sun hit our faces, and we knew for a fact that this was a once in a lifetime experience.

We arrived around 5:30 p.m. but didn’t begin to rehearse right away due to the fact that there were about 15 choirs in the parking lot. It added up to over 1,000 people trying to find their place in a parking lot. Once everything settled, we began to rehearse “The Star Spangled Banner.”  At first we struggled, since we had practiced the song at a much slower pace. Eventually, we got the hang of it and blended in perfectly with the rest of the choirs.

After practicing, all choirs had to get into four lines and wait in a line until it was time to go in. We waited patiently waited in our four when we heard “It’s time to go in.” As we went through the tunnel that leads into the stadium, we felt a rush of adrenaline go through our bodies as we saw the the thousands of people ready to hear us perform. As we saw the conductor raise his arms, we knew we would sing every note perfectly, and so we did.

After the performance we rushed to our seats. By the time we sat down, the game had started and we witnessed Mike Trout’s 200th home run. The game ended at 10:25 p.m. giving the Angels a close win of 6-5.  

As we left the stadium, many of us realized that we would never get to do this again. Instead of being saddened, we sang all the way home on the bus knowing that the experience was like no other.
