Georgetown bus driver achieves lifelong dream of singing National Anthem at game
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
Larry Calloway has been singing with power and passion for more than 50 years.
“There’s not a day that passes that I don’t sing and praise the worship of God,” Calloway said.
And he takes his talent on the road, singing to students and faculty at Georgetown University.
"I sing songs of praise, songs of worship to God and inspirational songs. I also leave them words of encouragement," he said.
Calloway is a beloved shuttle bus driver at Georgetown. He’s been on the job now for a year-and-a-half, but music is in his DNA.
"My goal is to sing a song that touches the heart of the world," Calloway said.
And his goal was also to sing a song with the school and team he loves. On Wednesday, Larry got that chance fulfilling his lifelong dream. While standing center court, Calloway sang the national anthem at the Georgetown basketball game.
"It's like a dream come true! Oh my God, it was awesome!" he said.
Calloway has also been named an ‘Unsung Hero’ at Georgetown after inspiring students every day.
He's comfortable behind the wheel, but says he feels right at home on stage.
"I promised the Lord that this gift he has given me, that I will use it for his purpose and his will, and he is placing me in the direction to do so," Calloway said.
Calloway achieved his dream, but he's setting a new goal for the New Year. Now, he's working on landing a record deal.
