Late Night Bonus Post: "Magic" At The Magic Game

Stole this from the "NBA on Yahoo! Sports" page. Just in case you are too lazy to click on a link, I'm going to add it here as well. Yes it's that good!

Magic's 7-year-old good luck charm works again

It's only fitting the Orlando Magic have found the "magic formula" to pull within one game of advancing to their first NBA Finals since 1995: trot out an adorable little girl to sing the national anthem.

Poof! Magic win!

Gina Marie Incandela — a talented 7-year-old who as a toddler had a speech disorder that made it impossible for her to form words — once again belted out the anthem before Game 4 Tuesday night, and low and Hedo, Orlando won 116-114 in overtime. Again.

The Magic are now 4-0 in the postseason when little Gina sings.

"It just makes peoples' heart feel good and they like it when I sing," she recently told Shannon Owens of the Orlando Sentinel. "And it makes the Magic win every single time."

Her singing talent was discovered after her parents enrolled her in a special needs program at the University of Central Florida where instructors used music to help coax her to talk. Shortly there after she took a liking to Leanne Rimes, and when she heard Rimes' rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner," she mastered the tune.

Here she is performing before Game 3 vs. the Boston Celtics last round. Chills.
