NEW YORK — A World War II veteran's moving version of the national anthem is again going viral.
According to WXXI, Pete DuPré, 96, captivated NBA fans with his harmonica rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" on Sunday before the New York Knicks faced the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden.
ESPN tweeted a clip of the performance, which came one day before Veterans Day. By 8 a.m. Monday, the video had been viewed more than 500,000 times.
This isn't the first time DuPré's take on the national anthem has made headlines; he also wowed spectators before a Minnesota Vikings game in September and a women's soccer match in May, among others.
