Congratulations to MBS rising junior Maya Bhide ’23, who did an outstanding job singing the National Anthem before the New York Jets preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday night, August 27 at MetLife Stadium.
Maya showed tremendous poise as she navigated numerous obstacles including rain and the audio lag in the stadium to sing beautifully before a crowd of 50,000. “Her performance was incredible and a great way to kickoff our first game back in MetLife Stadium,” said New York Jets representative Olivia Sherman.
Maya earned this distinguished opportunity after winning the 18 and Under category of the 14th annual talent show Morristown ONSTAGE last March. For the finals, Bhide sung a stunning version of the Mariah Carey song “Hero.”
At MBS, Bhide has sung with the Upper School Chorus and has appeared on the Founders Hall stage numerous times for assemblies and in the musicals Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, and Honk, Jr. She has been singing since she was 5, and takes voice and piano lessons outside of school.
