Young American Anthem Singer Faces Backlash With Grace

Posted: Updated:

An 11-year-old boy proves he has much more maturity and talent than hundreds of NBA fans. 

'America's Got Talent' star Sebastien De La Cruz was chosen to perform the national anthem before game three of the NBA finals, in his hometown of San Antonio.

He did an amazing job, but apparently there were a lot of people on the internet who took issue with Sebastien's Mexican appearance and clothing.

They didn't understand why a "Mexican" would be singing the American national anthem and they didn't always just use the word "Mexican."

De La Cruz,was born in Texas and is an American.
