Utah Jazz: Tabernacle Choir to sing anthem at home-opener Friday
They've performed for U.S. presidents, prophets and people around the world.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will next sing for a bit rowdier audience.
On Friday, the renowned singing group will take center court at EnergySolutions Arena and perform the national anthem before the Utah Jazz's 7 p.m. home opener. It will be just the second time in the NBA franchise's history that the choir has crooned out the Star Spangled Banner at a Jazz game.
The 360-member choir, which has sung in 28 different countries over the years and thousands of times down the street at Temple Square and the LDS Conference Center, last sang the anthem at a Jazz game at the post-9/11 season-opener in 2001.
