KANSAS CITY, Mo. — If you’ve dreamed of performing the National Anthem or “God Bless America” at a Kansas City Royals game, it’s time to turn your dream into action.

The Royals are holding their sixth annual “Royals Fans Got Talent” auditions on Saturday, March 14 starting at 8 a.m. at Kauffman Stadium. However, you can’t just show up there.

To be considered for the invitation, fans need to complete and submit paperwork accompanied by an MP3 or YouTube link of performance via email to ‘2015Auditions@Royals.com’. Information for submission can also be found by visiting royals.com/perform. All National Anthem and God Bless America auditions and paperwork must be submitted via email to ‘2015Auditions@Royals.com’ no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, March 6.
