BALTIMORE - Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is known for his big leg on the football field, but he has a booming voice as well.
The third-most accurate kicker in NFL history performed on a different stage Thursday night singing “Ave Maria” with the Concert Artists of Baltimore at a Catholic Charities benefit concert at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He received a huge standing ovation after his first classical music performance.
Tucker has a background in opera music majoring in recording technology while he attended the University of Texas. According to ESPN, he learned to sing in seven different languages and studied under a professor who is a renowned opera singer.
But Tucker’s talented pipes have been seen before. He sung about his love for coffee in a commercial for Royal Farms.
