HOUSTON (KRLD) - Raycheal Winters will sing the national anthem tonight before the Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Park.

She competed with more than 40 students to compete in the Houston Community College's ‘Sing for the ‘Stros’ national anthem contest.

Her amazing rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner completely wowed the judges. She's 23 and from Katy.

Raycheal says, "I've been singing since I was in elementary school." She's never performed for more than 50 people and the sold-out Astros game is expected to have over 40,000 people in attendance. 

"I'm just happy to be singing the national anthem at the Astros game. Anything else that happens after that is just more of a blessing," Raycheal says.

She is taking classes at Houston Community College and plans to go to the University of Houston to study Communications or Media Production. She loves to record music with her band Rae and the Bodhi Boys.
