Warner Robins Woman Sings on Chattanooga Movie Set

Lisa Hiland of Warner Robins, got the moment of a lifetime: the chance to sing on a movie set.

She sang the National Anthem on the Chattanooga set for "42" at the end of May.

Being part of a musical family and singing for most of her life, she says she was more excited than nervous about the opportunity.
