Ginny Owens Sings National Anthem at 'Tee-Ball on the South lawn' of White House
27 July 2005

(Franklin, TN… 07/26/05) Rocketown recording artist Ginny Owens sang the National Anthem Sunday at “Tee-Ball on the South Lawn,” a special initiative launched in 2001 by President George W. Bush to “promote interest in baseball and a spirit of teamwork and service for America's youth.”

Sunday’s game featured District 12 Little League Challengers from Williamsport, Penn. playing West University Little League Challengers from Houston, Texas. The Little League’s Challenger Division is organized for and features teams comprised of mentally and physically disabled children, and this game celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities. Baseball Hall of Famers Paul Molitor (2004) and Ozzie Smith (2002) as well as special guest Andy Pettitte (Houston Astros) joined White House Tee Ball Commissioner of the Game Steve Palermo on the field with the players and their buddies. After welcoming the Challenger teams to the White House in recognition of the ADA, President Bush placed the first ball on the Tee to begin the game and then joined Mrs. Bush in the stands with the players’ families and friends.

“Meeting the President and singing the National Anthem at the White House are two experiences I’ve never imagined being allowed to have,” said Owens. “Both opportunities were unbelievably exciting, but shaking the hand of President George W. Bush will forever remain one of my favorite memories and greatest honors.”

Earlier this year Owens began her own non-profit venture to meet the needs of disadvantaged children. The Fingerprint Initiative (fingerprintinitiative.org) seeks to bring hope to children through partnerships with other non-profits, with fans and with special events led by founder Ginny Owens.
