(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- A woman on a mission to become the first person to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" in all 50 states completed her goal Thursday night in Tennessee.
Janine Stange, also known as "The National Anthem Girl," celebrated her 50th performance in Nashville before an NFL preseason game.
Stange says she wanted to complete her mission by a special date.
"The National Anthem is turning 200 on September 14th, so I made it a self-imposed deadline to finish by that date," she said.
Stange is known for bringing thank you cards to every performance in which fans can write messages to deployed service members.
"I love this country," she said, "I love the men and women who embody the meaning of the National Anthem."
