The Flyers anthemist (and daughter of the late Flyers announcer Gene Hart) is on her way to Ethiopia with husband Todd Carmichael to adopt a child.

Why Lauren Hart will miss Game 6

Singer Lauren Hart will miss Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals between the Flyers and Penguins on Saturday, as she and husband, coffee magnate/explorer Todd Carmichael, are en route to Ethiopia where they'll be adopting their first child.

The Flyers will play a video of Hart performing "God Bless America" in a duet with the late Kate Smith before the game. Members of the local military will present the colors of the American Flag on the ice.

This is the first time in eight seasons in which Hart will be unavailable to perform live.
