Boy Returns For Triumphant National Anthem Performance

Posted: Updated:

Yesterday, we brought you the story of 11-year-old Sebastien De La Cruz. 

Sebastian sang the national Anthem during Game 3 of the  NBA finals, but some people on the internet took issue with Sebastian's appearance and clothing.

Well, Sebastian was back for Game 4!  He was introduced by San Antonio mayor Julian Castro, a fellow Mexican American.

The crowd went WILD!  

Castro said he was proud of Sebastien for keeping his cool over the comments.

Sebestian will make his way to New York City this weekend where there is a mariachi conference.

He will be singing in the National Anthem competition.
