Harlan native Jordan Smith, the latest winner on NBC’s “The Voice”, will sing that national anthem prior to Saturday’s UK-Ole Miss basketball game at Rupp Arena. In a post on his official Facebook page, the singer called it a dream come true.

He wrote:

Happy Tuesday, ‪#‎TeamJordan‬! I have some super exciting news that I’ve been dying to tell you!

Firstly, I will be singing the National Anthem at the NHL Winter Classic in Boston, MA this Friday! The game will be televised on NBC starting at 1pm EST. This is a huge opportunity and will be tons of fun, so be sure to tune in!

Secondly, I will also be singing the National Anthem at the UK Basketball game this Saturday, Jan. 2nd, at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY. I have always been a huge Cats fan, so singing at this game is another dream come true!

Lots more big things are in store for 2016 and I can’t wait to share them with you. Stay tuned for more info on what’s to come!

While a contestant on the show, Smith’s version of Queen’s “Somebody To Love” went viral and sent him on his way to victory.
