WASHINGTON (WABC) -- A woman who spontaneously started singing the Star Spangled Banner at a national monument in Washington caused all park visitors to stop in their tracks.

G. Star Swain posted a video to YouTube that shows her special moment at the Lincoln Memorial on June 16:

The video has already been seen by more than 12,000 people.

In the video, you can see how after a few lines, all of the attention is turned to her. At 2:10 into the video, one of the spectators even puts her bag down and points up in the air as Swain hits a high note.

According to her Facebook page, Swain is an assistant principle at a school in Florida. She posted a message of thanks on Monday:
