This Is 12-Year-Old Taylor Swift Singing The National Anthem

A video featuring a baby-faced Taylor Swift is making us feel all kinds of patriotic this week.

In 2002, at the tender age of 12, Swift -- decked out in an American flag blouse and red accessories -- took to the court before a Detroit Pistons and Philadelphia 76ers game in Philadelphia to belt out the national anthem. A cappella, no less.

The video of Swift's cherubic performance has been making the rounds on the Internet this week, inducing major “awwws” everywhere. (Watch the throwback clip above.)

T. Swift-related nostalgia has been plentiful in recent days. Just last week, to celebrate the success of her new album “1989,” the 24-year-old star posted a photograph of her 12-year-old self on Instagram.

“I was … going through my braids phase.’ #nofilternecessary,” she wrote.
