Westbriar Family Hits All the High Notes

Originally published 1/18/18

The Redskin’s season was cut short this year, but that is not going to affect its loyal fan base. While most diehard fans can name all the starting players, few know the name of the tall Army officer that regularly sings the Anthem before our games, or “God Bless America” at the two minute warning prior to halftimes.

That would be Master Sargeant Kerry Wilkerson, a twenty year member of the US Army Chorus, who lives here in Westbriar Zone A. He will be retiring from the Army this summer, but not from music. Freelance singing and voice lessons are part of his plan.

Kerry’s wife, Danielle Talamantes, is also a football fan, and has treated the stadium to her fine soprano voice. However, she is better known as a classical singer, being on the roster of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City for the last seven seasons. Those interested in the genre will enjoy browsing her website.
