Tim McCallum to sing the Australian National anthem at the AFL Grand Final 2020. The Voice alum Tim McCallum will sing the national anthem, after a successful social media campaign to get the long-time Saints fan the gig.
“I sing from a wheelchair, and when I get a good backing or a band behind me, I can actually feel it through my wheelchair – and it feels like it lifts me up,” Mr. McCallum said.
“It’s my dream to sing the national anthem at the AFL grand final, and the fact I can do this in front of my home crowd at the Gabba just makes the occasion even more special.
“I want my performance at the AFL grand final to show people out there – no matter what obstacles life throws at you – that you too can be center-stage.”
This won’t be McCullum’s first national anthem on a national stage.
