Rapper Lil Dicky brings Harbaugh on stage to sing national anthem
University of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh showed off his singing skills Saturday night, taking the stage at Hill Auditorium with rapper Lil Dicky to sing the National Anthem.
Multiple attendees posted videos and photos of Harbaugh leading the crowd in the song. The rapper wore a #88 Jake Butt jersey while Harbaugh sported, as usual, khakis.

Lil Dicky himself retweeted a number of Twitter accounts — from the Bleacher Report to the official University account — covering the duet.
The rapper also tweeted from his account, referring to Harbaugh’s appearance.
I don't bring rappers out, I bring out head football coaches

Harbaugh also met with the rapper earlier on Saturday afternoon, posing for a picture in his office.
Lil Dicky, whose real name is David Burd, additionally shared the stage Saturday night with Chicago rapper Vic Mensa.
Harbaugh’s appearance onstage Saturday comes just two months after “Signing of the Stars,” the University blockbuster signing event, featuring guests from Tom Brady to rap group Migos. Harbaugh has gained some other onstage experience recently when he made a cameo in the University musical, Big Fish — and appears to have recovered from his 4th place finish as a write-in for Central Student Government president earlier this month.
