Warner Robins Woman Sings on Chattanooga 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.

She posted a video of her singing the National Anthem as part of a competition on Facebook. Hiland won by getting the most "likes" out of the videos in the competition.

Hiland says the most exciting part about the shoot was getting to dress in 1940s style.
