JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An eleven year old girl from the Jackson area could be on her way to becoming a star. In January, Grace Gunn Davis sang the national anthem at an Ole Miss basketball game. Then things started to happen.

A video of her performance was posted on Youtube, and now the entire Davis family is in California.

Grace, who also writes songs and plays guitar, is working on a demo CD. Last week, she was one of 250 people who auditioned to sing the national anthem at a Los Angeles Dodgers game this season.

But it's not just music, Grace has been cast in two movies. One is an independent film that starts shooting in May. Her brother Clayton has also been cast in that movie. He'll play her brother.

She has also been cast in a movie called "Rock Star Christmas."
