Tim Cahill's son, 10-year-old aspiring artist Kyah Cahill, sings US national anthem at Red Bull Arena

Saturday night's match will be one that New York Red Bulls star Tim Cahill won't easily forget.

Not because he scored a goal in another eventful Atlantic Cup match against D.C. United. Even better.

With Thierry Henry sitting out, Cahill wore the captain's armband for the club and led his team out to the field, where his son, 10-year-old Kyah Cahill, belted the US national anthem in the pregame ceremony.

The younger Cahill is described by the PA announced as a "young actor and aspiring recording artist currently studying acting and music, and auditioning for parts from Broadway to Disney."

Not long after Kyah's rendition, it was Tim stealing the show with the game-winning goal on one of his patented headers. If Kyah can sing as well as his dad can head a soccer ball, he could be in for a long career in the music biz.
