The votes are in...

In October we began the search for this year’s National Anthem performer by rolling out the first ever Valero Alamo Bowl “Stars and Stripes” National Anthem contest.  After a very competitive submission round, we narrowed down the selection to three very talented finalists.  After two weeks of voting the results are in…

The National Anthem performer for the
2013 Valero Alamo Bowl is Erica Gonzaba! 

Erica clinched first place with a total of 9,006 votes.  Erica will have the opportunity to perform the National Anthem in front of 65,000+ fans before one of the prime college football matchups of the year.  Orginally trained in opera, this San Antonio native has not only a large local fan base, but an international one as well.  To learn more about Erica check out her Facebook.

Erica will also have the opportunity to sing God Bless America before the game as a part of the Valero Alamo Bowl’s Gold Star Families Tribute, which honors the immediate family of fallen service members.  Learn more about Gold Star Families here.

We are not only looking forward to an exciting Big 12 vs. Pac-12 matchup, but also great pregame performances by this talented singer.  The participating teams of the 2013 Valero Alamo Bowl will be announced this upcoming Sunday, December 8th so make sure to stay close to see who will be joining us this year in San Antonio!
