"...one of the most inspiring versions of the Star-Spangled Banner we've ever heard." -- The Huffington Post, 2013
"One of the most inspiring combinations of sports and music you'll ever see" - Buzzfeed, 2013.
Sami Grisafe performed this signature version of The Star-Spangled Banner moments before taking the field as quarterback for Team USA and winning the gold medal in the 2013 IFAF Women's World Championship for tackle football.
Sami Grisafe is the World Championship MVP Quarterback for Team USA and the Chicago Force. In 2013, she led the Chicago Force and Team USA to National and World Championship victories and was awarded MVP for both. She will be featured in the documentary, The Tackle Girls, scheduled for release for Super Bowl 2014. www.thetacklegirls.com
As a songwriter, musician and recording artist, Sami earned the Chicago Music Award for Best Rock Entertainer. Sami's current full-length studio album is a collaboration with former Universal Republic recording artist, Shannon Nicole and Chicago-based piano virtuoso Jaclyn Rada. ATLANTIS is refreshingly diverse, receiving 6 Grammy pre-nominations with a few Grammy Award winning collaborators associated with it such as blues artist Sugar Blue (Rolling Stones) and producer Ricciano Lumpkins (TLC, P.O.D., Mya) as well as acclaimed Chicago-based musicians, Brother John (Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Black Crowes) and Matt Hines (winner of Guitar Center's 2013 Blues Masters competition). Her upbeat, super catchy single, "Hooky (in Chicago)," is built on a lifting reggae groove that gently dissuades you from being cooped up at work on a beautiful day.
