THE BRONX -

The Bronx's Highbridge Voices choir sang the national anthem Tuesday for Game 4 of the American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium.

Francheska Gomez is one of about 200 students ages 9 through 18 who participate in the choir. She says she's been singing as long as she can remember.

"Singing and music are a big part of my life, because I've been doing it since I was so young," she says.

The choir sang to tens of thousands of fans in Yankee Stadium and millions more watching from home.

"It was the largest crowd, but I wasn't nervous," Gomez says.
