As previously reported, Kyle Lowder sang the national anthem prior to the September 23 Los Angeles Dodgers game.
The soap star recently spoke to Soap Opera Weekly about the experience. Here are excerpts from the interview:
Soap Opera Weekly: How did the opportunity to sing the National Anthem come about?
Kyle Lowder: I did it two or three months ago — or actually, three or four months ago. It was very flattering. So they just called back and were like, "We want you to do it again." The Dodgers are in first place right now and the stadium is being filled because of that. They only have three home games left this season, so the fact that they asked me back to do it was really great.
Weekly: So it doesn't freak you out to be in front of all those people?
Lowder: It's funny — it's easier to sing in a stadium of 60,000 than in a intimate room, because you're up there; you're far away from everybody. You're on this huge, grand stage; you have a mic. You know it's very grandiose and kind of big. Whereas it's very difficult to sit in a little intimate setting with 10 people and deliver yourself there. This kind of thing does not make me nervous; it's a lot of fun [for me]
Kyle Lowder can do more than just act on The Bold and the Beautiful. Watch him belting out America's theme song!
