December 2013 Erica Nicole met with the ECAD (Educated Canines
Assisting with Disabilities) organization because she wanted to get
involved with a service dog non-profit. September 15, 2014 she was asked
to join ECAD for the “bring your dog to the park day” at Citi Field to
sing National Anthem with a veteran and his service dog by her side.
one year later, Citi Field asked Erica if she would return to sing the
national anthem. Although it was not a “bring your dog to the park day,”
she accepted the invitation. Because of her relationship with ECAD she
asked that she be joined once again with a veteran and service dog on
Hector Torres and his service dog Tuna accompanied her
on Sept 15th, 2015 at CitiField to stand beside her as she performed
the anthem for the Mets, Marlins and their fans.
