This little girl needs our help to advance in a national competition to sing the National Anthem at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

Even some of the most respected singers in the world will tell you that singing The Star Spangled Banner is one of the hardest songs to sing.

So when people pull it off flawlessly, it makes it even more incredible.  When they're only 13, it's amazing.

That's why her parents are looking for your help.

Her name is Ally Rose Marella from North Tonawanda.  She's 13 years old and she's a finalist in a competition that will allow her to perform the National Anthem in Las Vegas at the NFR.

According to her mom's email:

"She made this far 2 years ago but didn't win.  This part is strictly by voting.  She is the only contestant from NY that made it this far."

Ally is a 13 y/o singer/songwriter that has had the honor of performing the National Anthem for: The Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Bisons, Patriot Guardians, Syracuse Orange Men's Basketball team, Buffalo Riverwork's Woman's Roller Derby, Lewiston Jazz Festival, NYS Fair, Lewiston Peach Festival.   She was also a finalist for the Taste of Country.  Ally also has performed her own showcase for Hard Rock Cafe, EA Music Festival, Music is Art, Platter's, Wegman's with her original music and cover songs.  Most recently she took first place for the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Singer/songwriter contest.  Was crowned Amherst Teen Idol and won Nationally through starbound.

This is where her mom was hoping for your help.  She asks, "please vote and share and help make this dream a reality for her :)  She is hardworking and humble :)"
