Sometimes, viral stars get more than their 15 minutes of fame. That was originally the case with Candace Payne, better known as “Chewbacca Mom,” who sang the national anthem at a 2016 Houston Astros game. Payne became the subject of the most-ever viewed Facebook Live post earlier in the year after exploding into hysterics about her purchase of a noise-making Chewbacca mask.
The Astros Marriner’s game at Minute Maid Park in Houston isn’t Payne’s first foray into the spotlight of Major League Baseball. She threw out the opening pitch for the Astros earlier in the year.
Hasbro made an action figure of the Texas mom with the infectious laugh. Until now, no one realized she could sing as well.
