It was Disability Awareness Night at Fenway Park and two teens filled the stadium with inspiration.

On Monday night, Miss Inspirational 2018 Jamie Piro and Miss Inspirational 2019 Audrey McDonnell sang the national anthem in front of thousands of people.

Just before the Boston Red Sox were about to take the field against the Texas Rangers, these best friends sang their hearts out with patriotic pride. The 22-year old girls from Mansfield were accompanied by two local women, former Miss Massachusetts Jillian Zucco and Holly Cardoza, who helped organize the Miss Inspirational Program for the past four years.

The Miss Inspirational Program celebrates young girls and women with special needs and disabilities and mainly focuses on their abilities more than their disabilities. This year, on May 11, McDonnell took home the title of Miss Inspirational for 2019 and Piro was crowned the previous year.

There were three categories that the girls were judged by:

  • Introductions
  • Talent
  • Formal Wear

There's a motto that the Miss Inspirational Program lives by: "Focusing on abilities, raising awareness and breaking barriers." And that's exactly how the world should perceive and embrace the beauty and talent of these young women.

Wonderful job, ladies. You made us all proud just by singling loud.
