Matthew Irish, master sergeant and beloved husband of chorus teacher Jessica Irish, sang the National Anthem at Redskins game on Sunday, Sept 20. Irish’s husband is part of the premier choir of the United States Air Force, the Singing Sergeants. He sang in honor of the U.S. Air Force’s 68th anniversary.
They also sing for military leaders, host public concerts, preform at the Air Force memorial and entertain dignitaries from other nations and the President.
“He sung the national anthem many times for high profile events, but this one was one of those performances that made him the most nervous,” Irish said. This was the first time Matthew Irish had sang at a Redskins game.
