Little girl wins hearts with her cup song for the Royals
LAWRENCE, Kan. (FOX4KC) - The Royals may have a new theme song leading them down the 'Road to Gold.' While they have their fancy high fives, this song comes with a new set of moves!
Lily McBain from Lawrence loves to sing, and it was a video on YouTube that inspired her to learn the "Cup Song," from the popular film "Pitch Perfect." She was singing it so often, along with talking about the Royals in a sing-song voice, her parents suggested she combine the two.
Lily says she started working on the song right away. Her parents say she was writing down the names of players and other words she could use in her song.
Her parents helped her a little, but it was days of dedication and practice that got Lily to the point of memorizing the song along with the hand moves.
Lily says when the Royals make it to the World Series, she already knows how she'll change the song.
"Just the team, and then change my ALCS to World Series. That's all," Lily said.
Lily's been a fan of Lorenzo Cain in the post-season because of his awesome catches and hits. Lily's parents say they're surprised her video's gotten so much attention with hundreds of thousands of views. They say it's nice to know that others see her video and it makes them smile.
