Lilian Garcia

If Lilian Garcia is announcing your name, you know you have made it to the big leagues of professional wrestling. Her heavenly vocal cords have accompanied WWE Superstars to the squared circle since 1999. She has explained match stipulations, introduced new title holders and welcomed fans to the arena more times than she can remember.

In addition to announcing, Lilian is an accomplished vocalist. While serving as the ring announcer for Monday Night Raw from 2000 through 2009, the beautiful Diva showed off her talents with an emotional and heartfelt rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner prior to each show. She has also opened up for numerous professional sports teams, including the National Football League’s New York Jets, Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs, and the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association. The popularity of her amazing voice ultimately led to the production of her ¡Quiero Vivir!, which was released on October 9, 2007 via Universal Music Latino.

Her most revered memories, though, are of singing “America the Beautiful” at WrestleMania on two occasions. She belted out an emotional rendition on the first SmackDown after the September 11 attacks. Lilian’s beautiful performance of the United States national anthem helped WWE to rally suffering citizens. She always empties her heart into her singing, but there was something extra special in her voice on the memorable night in Houston, Texas.

Being as beautiful as Lilian is, it was only a matter of time before a WWE Superstar made a pass at her. In May 2005, the inevitable occurred when the mighty Viscera proclaimed his love for the sexy ring announcer. On the surface, Garcia and the wrestler formerly known as Mabel didn’t look like the prototypical couple; but inside, they shared a deep connection. Or so Lilian thought. The following month, a smitten Lilian proposed marriage to her man during WWE’s Vengeance pay-per-view event. Unfortunately for Lilian, she was ultimately heartbroken when he chose to be with The Godfather’s “Hos” rather than marry her.

Following a remarkable ten-year career with WWE, Lilian emotionally bid farewell to fans on the September 21, 2009 episode of Monday Night Raw. Thankfully, this turned out to be a two-year sabbatical and this Diva’s angelic voice returned to WWE airwaves on SmackDown and once again, Raw.
