Drag performer sings anthem at SF Giants game

The Twitter feed for the Queers United blog ("the activist blog uniting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexual, Asexual community & Allies in the fight for equality") had a link to this blog post from Joe.My.God. Donna Sachet, described on the blog as a "San Francisco drag legend," sang the national anthem before a San Francisco Giants game last week at AT&T Park. The post states that she is the first drag performer to sing the anthem at a major league baseball game. That may be true; I don't know of any others. Unfortunately, she didn't sing it very well. I know it's not an easy song to sing, but...well, take a look (after the jump):


At the very end there's an edit in the video. I wondered if there was a negative reaction from the crowd at the end, but I found another clip, which showed that no booing occurred.
