The New York Yankees beat the San Francisco Giants 6-0 on April 2, but that was far from the day’s most exciting event.

In honor of World Autism Awareness Day, the game started with an unusual, and gorgeous, rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” performed by violinist Ethan Donn, a young man with autism from White Plains, N.Y.

Donn has performed for big crowds before. “Ethan focused on finding his abilities and developing them, and he loves to perform,” the Jewishlink.news wrote in 2021. “He has gone from performing for the Friendship Circle in front of a handful of people to thousands of people at a stadium. He performed for the Mets the last two seasons, and virtually for the New York Yankees and New Jersey Devils this season.”

Check out his latest performance.
