In-Arena Fan Zone FAQ’s
How can I sing the National Anthem?
Karen Newman performs the National Anthem for Home Red Wings games. On the occasion that Karen is unavailable, we consider other performers. To be considered for the anthem singer you may submit your headshot, resume of performace history including the largest crowd you have performed in front of and a CD with both the U.S. and Canadian anthems. The U.S. Anthem should not exceed 90 seconds and not be overly stylized. The Canadian Anthem should be no longer than 75 seconds, and not be overly stylized. Qualified applicants will be invited to a live audition at Joe Louis Arena.
All materials submitted for consideration become property of the Detroit Red Wings and will not be returned. No email submissions will be accepted. For consideration you may mail your packet to:

How can I propose at Joe Louis Arena?
There are two types of proposals during Red Wings games. A live proposal and a videoboard message. The videoboard message is your proposal on the scoreboard at intermission – there is no live shot of the event as it happens. Proposals must be submitted 72 hours in advance of the game you are attending.
The live proposal takes place at a TV Time out as one of our promotional activities, and is shown on the video board. We only do 10 live proposals per season and require a $500 donation to The Red Wings Wish Club at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. Live proposals must be coordinated a week in advance of the game you are attending. To schedule a message, please fill out the online form by clicking here. You can also contact the Red Wings Wish Club at (313) 745-5024 with questions.
