TRINITY STUDENT WOWS CROWD - 8/15/06
Christina Colosimo '09 could hardly believe her ears when she received the invitation
to sing the national anthem at U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday, August 15.
Colosimo had sent a demo tape to the White Sox figuring she had nothing to
lose. The last thing she expected was to receive a phone call shortly
thereafter requesting her to sing the next day. "It was a surreal
experience," Colosimo said. "It was a blessing in disguise that they
asked me to sing right away or else stage fright would have set in."
Colosimo did not disappoint, belting out "The Star-Spangled Banner"
perfectly before a crowd of 37,000 baseball fans.
The impressive performance did not surprise those who know Colosimo.
She has been taking voice lessons from vocalist Benjamin Rivera, who
is an adjunct professor at Trinity. She also starred in The Miser, a
play put on by Trinity Communication Arts professor John Sebestyen.
Colosimo is entering her second year of college at Trinity. She's the
daughter of Ronald and Mary Lynn Colosimo. Mary Lynn is a professor of
psychology at Trinity.
