Ravens’ Justin Tucker calls on his opera training to sing ‘Ave Maria’
In addition to being an NFL kicker, Justin Tucker is also a trained opera vocalist, and the Ravens starter called on that skill when he sang a beautiful rendition of Ave Maria.
The performance took place Thursday night at a concert of Christmas music for Catholic Charities in Baltimore, and Tucker delivered on the 190-year-old melody.
Tucker has also used his golden voice for some slightly less lofty works, singing a jingle for a mid-Atlantic coffee chain earlier this season.
The fourth year Baltimore kicker is 24-for-25 this season on attempts from inside 50 yards, and has yet to miss an extra point attempt in his career.
