Timmy Kelly Sings National Anthem

Dec 13, 2005, 1:26 AM EDT

Little Timmy Kelly sang the national anthem before Sunday’s game at the Linc against Dallas.  The Eagles won 38-24.  I’ve seen Timmy sing he anthem previously, but About.com says the Eagles never lose when Timmy does the honors.  Anyone have any more concrete info on this?  From USVariety.com:

            On February 1, 2005 11-year-old Timmy Kelly performed the national anthem for Philadelphia Eagle’s fans at this year’s Divisional playoffs.  Quite an extraordinary occasion for any child, but Timmy has cerebral palsy and has been blind since birth. The Philadelphia chapter of Variety has made Timmy and two other talented children "Youth Ambassadors" who represent the organization at various functions. The local success of this program has inspired Variety to create a national program for musically inclined children.
