Congratulations goes out to Joe Cantone of Cranston, RI! Joe submitted an entry to our National Anthem Singing contest for a chance to sing at NFPA Conference & Expo general session in Chicago this June. NFPA received many amazing entries from talented singers across the country and narrowed them down to 4 spectacular finalists. 

You all voted throughout April for your favorite finalist and now the results are in. We are excited to announce that Joe edged out the competition and received the most votes making him this year's winner! From the video above, it look like Joe is also excited! We can't wait to hear Joe sing the Anthem at this year's Conference & Expo in Chicago, June 22nd. There's still time to register to attend if you haven't done so yet, and if you are attending, you won't want to miss general session to hear Joe sing his heart out (we'll be sure to post video after the event as well).
