Temecula’s Jamie Brosious sang the national anthem prior to the start of the May 18 Professional Bull Riders competition in Pala.
“It was a good time. I enjoy doing it,” she said.
Brosious has sung the Star-Spangled Banner at one of the Pala PBR performances each year since 2011.
“Definitely a privilege. Always enjoyable,” she said.
The Pala Rodeo Grounds is across the parking lot from Pala Casino, which opened in April 2001. Brosious was one of the original Pala Casino employees, beginning as a Privilege Card attendant. She is currently an administrative assistant for the table games
Brosious, who was born in Long Beach and has lived in Temecula for the past 27 years, graduated from Temecula Valley High School in 1997. Her organized singing history includes her past church activity at St. Martha’s in Murrieta, although she no longer sings at church.
“I have a three-year-old and he kind of takes up most of my time,” she said.
Brosious also won Pala’s June 2013 talent contest. Pala Casino has hosted an annual two-day PBR event since 2010.
