Game 4 anthem singer is...

Air Force Sgt. Jody Johnson, who sang "God Bless America" during the Sept. 11, 2008, Phillies-Brewers game, got the honors to sing the national anthem at Sunday's Game 4 of the World Series.

Johnson, a Philadelphian who grew up in Alaska, has sung 10 times at Citizens Bank Park, usually on holidays and events recognizing military service.

She claims to be a Phillies fan, but as she told the Peninsula Clarion: "I park in the lot with a big fat Red Sox sticker on my car. Now I'm teased, how I can sing for the Phillies and support the Sox?"

Alanis Morissette will sing Monday at Game 5.
