Unfortunately, the above clip is cut off at the end. Here’s a full version of Madison’s anthem, a viewer shot off the TV.

Despite playing at home, the Houston Astros blanked the Phillies 5-0. Madison sang the anthem ahead of a history making game, as Houston starter Christian Javier threw the second World Series no-hitter. 

The singer was originally scheduled to sing the anthem for Game 3 on Monday, Oct 31, but the game was rescheduled to Tuesday due to weather. She did not perform Tuesday. Singer and songwriter Chloe Bailey performed the national anthem instead. 

Madison recently performed the National Anthem  on Oct. 16 when the Los Angeles Rams hosted the Carolina Panthers. 

Madison was chowing down at a Waffle House in Texas with friends when she learned that she booked the World Series. Her family and friends were beyond excited, as demonstrated in this Instagram video.
