Rudi Belts the National Anthem at NBA Playoffs Game and OMG We Have Chills
Talk about talent!
Rudi was invited to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Tuesday’s NBA playoffs game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks at L.A.’s Staples Center — and, yes, the “Listen to Your Heart” contestant’s powerful rendition of the national anthem gave us major chills.
Rudi shared the special moment via Instagram last night. It wasn’t long before notable Bachelor Nation stars flooded her comments section with amazed reactions.
“Can I hire you every night to sing me to sleep? Voice is velvet,” wrote Season 14 Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, to which Rudi replied, “Um yes I think I could do that.”
Meanwhile, Season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay remarked, “Rudi just so amazing.” Mike Johnson expressed similar sentiments, writing, “This is amazing!!”
Elsewhere, Kaitlyn Bristowe enthused, “Heck yes,” while Rudi’s fellow “Listen to Your Heart” alum and Los Angeles roommate Julia Rae added, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! Freaking unbelievable.”
Earlier this week, Rudi spoke exclusively with BachelorNation.com about her evolution as an artist over the past year. While she’s leaned into pop and R&B sounds on standout singles like “Smile” and “Stupid Boy,” the Texas native explained that her music has always centered her impressive vocal abilities.
“As a person, I am who I am. With my music, it’s the same thing. I write how I feel and that’s what makes me feel good, not having any boundaries and sticking to one sound,” she said. “But my voice is consistent. I’m an R&B soulful singer at heart. Other than that, I’m all over the place — as a human and as an artist. And I think that’s a cool thing.”
