GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – WMTV-TV and its parent company, Gray Television, brought back a television tradition in 2019 with the broadcast of the national anthem. And the talented young singer who performs “The Star-Spangled Banner” is one of us!
“The Star Spangled Banner” is played before dawn each day at 3:58 am, signaling the end of one broadcast day and the start of the next.
The girl who sings the national anthem is Reina Ozbay, who was 9 at the time of recording.
Reina was born July 3 in a Milwaukee hospital. His mother remembers, “The night he was born there was a huge fireworks display outside the hospital window by Lake Milwaukee – because they always looked big on the 3rd. So it’s funny that she sings this song.
Her father went to the Milwaukee School of Engineering and her mother attended Marquette University. Reina’s mother lived in Wisconsin for 15 years, but Reina’s stay was much shorter.
“Reina knows Parkland, Florida like her home, but she goes with me to Milwaukee periodically to visit friends. She attended Kohl’s office daycare in Wisconsin the first year of her life, ”her mother says.
According to Internet Movie Database, Reina is a classically trained soprano who studies opera and musical theater. She became a stage actress at the age of 7.
