The Scouting Report: A weekly digest
Moving music, historic steamboats, Midwestern identity, creepy Jupiter
Last month, days after Israel fell victim to a terrorist attack that's triggered ongoing conflict there, Brittany Thune Lindberg sang the national anthems of both the United States and its Jewish-state ally at a vigil in downtown Sioux Falls. Her rendition wowed attendees at what was otherwise a somber event given the carnage that had played out on Oct. 7. Her singing of the Israel anthem to close the vigil was moving, to say the least, given what had just happened.
Video of her vocal acumen reached organizers of the Republican Jewish Coalition, who invited Thune Lindberg to bring her talents to the organization’s annual summit held Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, where she again performed both countries’ national anthems to open the summit’s Saturday night gala.
On hand for the summit were former President Donald Trump, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Florida Gov. Ron Disantis – all of whom are running for the 2024 GOP nomination for president. Thune Lindberg's father, U.S. Sen. John Thune, also watched his daughter’s performance.
You can watch a video of Thune Lindberg sing when the digital version of The Scouting Report publishes online this weekend at TheDakotaScout.com.
