An 11-year-old Bay Ridge actress landed a part on one of the biggest stages in the country.
Scarlett London Diviney sang the national anthem before the N.Y. Giants’ preseason game against the Carolina Panthers at MetLife Stadium Aug. 18.
“It was like an out-of-body experience,” London Diviney said. “I’ve never been to a real football game ever and it was so fun. I looked up and saw the huge crowd and thought, ‘Oh my God.’ I was definitely a little bit nervous but also so excited. I hadn’t performed in front of that many people before.”
Music has always been a part of the young thespian’s life.
“When I was a baby, my grandma used to babysit me and my mom would come home from work and record me,” she said. “I would sing into a little fake microphone and play a kiddie piano. It was great.”
London Diviney is no stranger to big performances. In April she finished a 14-month stint as Young Nala in the national tour of Disney’s “The Lion King,” which she said was a dream come true.
In October she will again co-host and direct “Voices to End Hunger,” a series of online cabaret shows.
