On July 5, 2014 Vanessa Bousay made local history as the first drag performer to appear at San Francisco Opera’s annual “Opera Night At The Ballpark”, live from AT&T Park. Winner of KDFC’s Star-Spangled Sing-Off Competition, Vanessa sang the national anthem before 30,000 Bay Area opera fans, prior to a live simulcast of Verdi’s La Traviata from the War Memorial Opera House.
