Paul Rodgers to Sing National Anthem at Mets Game
One of the greatest voices in rock history, Paul Rodgers, a founding member of both Free and Bad Company, will sing the national anthem at New York’s Citi Field on Sept. 10 before a baseball game between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals.
Rodgers will be on hand as part of “Hooves on First” Night, which will help raise funds for the Seraphim12 Foundation, an advocacy group for humane treatment of horses. A portion of game tickets purchased through a special page on the team’s website will go to Seraphim12.
Rodgers has long been a supporter of horses and is pledging 100% of the proceeds from his latest single, ‘With Our Love,’ to Seraphim12 and Racehorse Sanctuary. “Horses are such a powerful part of human development and have been since the early ages,” he said via press release. “We humans owe them so much. My wife Cynthia and I visited Seraphim 12, and can’t imagine any of these healthy vibrant beings being sent off to die. Especially ‘Daisy,’ who was to be slaughtered for human consumption at four months of age!”
