Renowned opera singer and Kansas City native Joyce DiDonato is so popular among Royals fans that one fan launched a petition t
imploring the Royals to ask her to sing the national anthem before a World Series game.

The public support for DiDonato worked. The Royals tasked her with singing the anthem before one of the biggest games in franchise history, and she delivered with a stirring rendition before Kansas City hosted the San Francisco Giants in Game 7 on Wednesday night.
