What to do when you get an attack of the hiccoughs just before you have to perform the national anthem to an audience of thousands at a baseball game?

Seven-year-old Ethan Hall was picked to perform the Australian National Anthem ahead of a game between The Adelaide Bite and the Brisbane Bandits.

Only a couple of notes in, he gets attack of hiccoughs.

But he’s not going to let a little thing like involuntary diaphragm spasms get in the way of his big moment.

Watch the whole thing:

Ethan, you’re an inspiration to us all
