RUTLAND - (AP) A Rutland woman and a teenager from Cabot will
perform during Vermont Day at Fenway Park, six days after the
deadly explosions at the Boston Marathon.
Soloist Olivia Gawet says it's a huge honor to be picked to sing
the national anthem, but that the honor feels different since
The 29-year-old told the Rutland Herald that Boston "is really
the home of the brave." She says seeing the senseless violence and
at the outpouring of love from strangers makes her very proud to
sing and honor the nation.
13-year-old Henry Burke of Cabot will perform "God Bless
America'' in the seventh inning.
