Daughter of Adult Ed Teacher Performs at Dodger Stadium

Trisha Lopez, daughter of El Monte-Rosemead Adult School teacher Wayne Miyahara, performed the national anthem at last week’s Dodger home game, marking her third time singing at the stadium.

“She went to an open call try out and was successful,” said proud father Miyahara.

A song leader and soloist at her church, Lopez was one of eight singers selected from 16,000 applicants across the country for “Gifted,” a Christian version of American Idol.

“We were treated great at Dodger Stadium,” said Miyahara.  “We got the VIP treatment and went to the press box and on the field as well.”
