Christopher Infantino was part of the many people who worked to get the Golden 1 Center up and running, hooking up the wiring and lighting, but it’s his voice that set him apart. He says he’d often sing at work, trying to keep the mood light. After working on the new arena for two years, the Sacramento Kings invited him back to sing the national anthem at center court before the regular season home opener tonight against the Spurs!
As for preparations for his big moment? He says he’s mainly been practicing in the shower saying of his golden opportunity, “On a night as big as this, the Kings could have gone with just about anyone… that they’re willing to give a local electrician a shot, speaks volumes.”
