Grand Rapids, Mich., May 10, 2018 — Local singer, Macy Krupiczewicz, won the Meijer State Games of Michigan National Anthem Contest sponsored by Heglund-Sova Realty. Krupiczewicz will perform at the summer games opening ceremony on June 22, 2018 at East Kentwood High School in front of an estimated 6,000 people.

The Meijer State Games of Michigan hosts a contest to find an audience-favorite singer to perform the National Anthem at the opening ceremony. Contestants submitted videos of themselves performing the National Anthem, then viewers could vote for their favorite performer through Facebook. There are over 6,000 members in the Meijer State Games of Michigan National Anthem Facebook group, where Krupiczewicz was declared the winner by 66 votes over her competition.

"Everyone knows how much music means to me, so to have a fan base of people rooting and voting for me is amazing," said Krupiczewicz. "If you put enough passion into something, you're bound to get there some day."

Krupiczewicz is originally from Byron Center, Mich. She is a Michigan State University alumna, where she received a degree in broadcast journalism. Next year she will move to Nashville to chase her singing dreams. She will continue to pursue journalism, but pursuing her dream is the biggest thing, according to Krupiczewicz.
