Milwaukee songwriter to sing national anthem at Packers game
MILWAUKEE — In two days, the Green Bay Packers take on the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field, and the center forward will be a Milwaukee native to help get things started.
Singing has become easy for Grace Weber. As she sat in her Los Angles home, she told TMJ4 about the full-circle moment.
“I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember,” Weber smiled via Zoom.
Weber was born and raised in Milwaukee, and the proud Pius High School graduate knew acting was her calling.
So she followed her dreams and it took her to the West Coast, but this weekend she’s heading back to the Midwest for an exciting opportunity.
“Any time someone said, ‘Oh, it’s so cool that you’re doing the anthem,’ I always think to myself, ‘It’s cool but I really want to do Lambeau Field,'” Weber said.
LET’S TALK ABOUT TALENT!!
The cold is nothing new to her, but after living in Los Angeles, she had to be prepared.

That dream will come true on Saturday as the Packers take on the 49ers. Weber will be front and center singing the national anthem.
“It will definitely be a dream moment come true,” Weber said. “It will also be my first time in Lambeau.”
Singing the national anthem is nothing new for Weber – she performed at a Giants game in New York – but she said nothing compares to playing Lambeau.
Now, the Milwaukee native isn’t new to freezing temperatures, but after living in Los Angeles, she knew she had to train somewhere cold.
“I had the idea of rehearsing inside a walking freezer, just to see what it would feel like,” smiles Weber.
She said the unconventional studio gave her the confidence she needed to sing her heart out on the frozen tundra.
“I’m very excited to have this full Wisconsin moment,” Weber exclaimed.
So we had to ask Weber what she’s looking forward to beyond singing. “I’ll have a kid, some cheese and some beer,” Weber laughed. “I’m very excited.”
Spoken like a true Wisconsinite.
