Critically-acclaimed recording artist Pia Toscano will sing the National Anthem prior to the start of the Auto Club 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday at Auto Club Speedway.
Toscano will also perform ‘God Bless America’ during Auto Club Speedway’s “Tribute to Unions and the American Worker” during pre-race festivities. Toscano has made a name for herself as a vocalist with a rich, emotionally transparent voice, clearly influenced by the likes of Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Etta James and Luther Vandross.
Performing since the age of four, Toscano was widely considered one of American Idol’s Season 10 frontrunners thanks to her powerhouse vocal ability and dark-haired beauty. She has performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Ellen, The White House, Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You can Dance The Disney Channel, and is currently known as the “Voice of the LA KINGS” singing the National Anthem at their home games at the Staples Center.
Pia recently had her film debut opposite AJ Michalka and Kevin Pollak in Lionsgate’s “Grace Unplugged.”
