Lilian Garcia has done the ring announcing for some of WWE’s most historic matches. Along the way, her melodious tone has become synonymous with the success of Monday Night Raw.
Lilian Garcia may be a ring announcer, but that hasn’t stopped her from receiving some of the biggest ovations in WWE history, thanks to her stirring rendition of the National Anthem.
A singer since she was a small child, Garcia was performing in bands by the time she was a teenager. After graduating from the University of South Carolina, she became a radio DJ before finding her way to WWE in 1999. Since then, Garcia has made history as the first female to announce at WrestleMania, and the first Diva to be in WWE for more than a decade.
Regularly performing The Star Spangled Banner before shows, Lilian has thrilled fans at multiple WrestleMania events and inspired the WWE Universe on the first SmackDown after 9/11. Outside of WWE, she has sung the National Anthem before hundreds of major sporting events, and even released her own album, Quiero Vivir, in 2007.
In 2009, Lilian took her musical chops outside WWE to record a follow-up album. She didn’t stay away long, however, and returned in December 2011 as the ring announcer for SmackDown. Her microphone was right where she left it.
