SAN DIEGO – Fifteen-year-old San Diego native and local standout Katriz Trinidad will perform the national anthem at the 10th annual San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, officials announced today. The Pre-Game Spectacular will also feature the “March On” of the Midshipmen by the U.S. Naval Academy.
The San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, with a 6:30 p.m. PT kickoff on December 23, will feature the Navy Midshipmen versus the San Diego State Aztecs. The game, which historically features festive pageantry throughout, will be played at Qualcomm Stadium and televised on ESPN.
Trinidad, from Chula Vista, was a contestant in season 7 of ‘The Voice’ in 2014. She entered and won her first singing competition at age eight and has won 14 championships since then. Trinidad performed at the 2012 California State Democratic Convention and also appeared at a San Diego Padres game during the 2014 season.
The SDCCU Poinsettia Bowl will open with a “March On” of the Midshipmen, a tradition when Navy is playing in the game. The “Parade of Wishes” follows, featuring children and families from Make-a-Wish® San Diego and then Trinidad will sing the national anthem as a football field-sized “Big Flag” is unfurled by 250 Marines. The pre-game show is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m.
