For the first time ever, the New England Revolution is tapping into the local musical talent pool in a search for its next National Anthem singer.
The lucky winner will have the privilege of singing the Anthem before the home games during the 2013 season at Gillette Stadium, where artists like Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney and Bon Jovi will play this summer.
Performers interested in being considered can submit their sample performances digitally between now and 4 p.m. on Friday, March 15.
Then, a select group of performers will be called back for the live final auditions, which will be held at The Lansdowne Pub in Boston on Tuesday, March 19, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
To be considered for the live auditions, submit an .mp3, .mp4 or YouTube video link to DavidC@revolutionsoccer.net, using the subject: National Anthem Submission, with the following information included in the body of the email:
· Phone number
· Email address
· Performance experience
Both Mix 104.1 and 103.3 AMP Radio will be on hand during the live auditions, with on-air personalities serving as judges and emcees.
All performers will be asked to sing a cappella and without note cards.

We've added a translation feature to the Corner Kicks blog to assist readers who may be more comfortable reading another language.
Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
