Train singer Pat Monahan kicked off game one of the NBA Finals at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, with a powerful performance of the national anthem.

Ahead of the Golden State Warriors facing off against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the championship round for the third straight year, the Bay Area native Monahan belted out a forceful rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" without the slightest bit of trouble. 

After his performance, the pop-rock vet made his own allegiances well known by putting on a Warriors cap.
