BOSTON - The Boston Bruins announced today that Fitchburg, MA native Whitney Doucet will perform the national anthem at the Boston Bruins home game against the New York Rangers on Saturday, January 19.
Doucet recently performed the national anthem on NFL opening day for the New England Patriots. Her newly released single "Lights Down Low" has been featured on 101.7 The Bull's "Backyard Country" and Country 102.5 "local catch". She also sang a duet with country singer Keith Urban during his "Raise 'em Up" tour. When Doucet is not performing acoustically or with The Moonshine Band, she can be found teaching vocal lessons at Patrice Peris Voice Studio in Westborough, MA.
With the retirement of Garden legend, Rene Rancourt, at the conclusion of the 2017-18 season, the Boston Bruins held live auditions on August 8 to find a rotating group of singers who would perform the anthem at home games during the 2018-19 season. Out of more than 600 applications, 52 finalists were chosen to partake in the live auditions. Doucet is the 13th out of that group of finalists to be selected to perform this season, following Todd Angilly, Shanna Jackman, Dayna Fisk, Michelle Brooks-Thompson, Kara McEachern, Nick Page, Sarah Kostecki, Vanessa Salvucci, David Tyler, Kamryn Richard, Paige Vigneron and Nicole Talbot. Information on future new anthem performers will be announced prior to each Boston Bruins home game.
