Sebastien De La Cruz, 11, was born in San Antonio, Texas. He's also got an amazing singing voice, which is why the San Antonio Spurs asked him to sing the National Anthem ahead of Tuesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

His televised appearance brought out the worst among racists with Twitter accounts, many of which suggested the boy didn't belong in the United States.

The kid's positive outlook on life is as awesome as his vocal chords. "I knew that one day when I sing that people were going to judge me," he said during an interview on a local TV station. "That’s why over the time I’ve grown, I’ve learned that you don’t really care what people say about you, it’s what you think about yourself."

The Spurs invited him back for Thursday's Game 4 National Anthem.

Two words: Nailed it.
