On Tuesday evening, North­eastern senior music industry major Courtnie Ben­nett will belt out the national anthem in front of class­mates and more than 30,000 base­ball fans inside his­toric Fenway Park.

I’m so excited,” said Ben­nett, who earned the honor of singing on Senior Night at Fenway Park by win­ning the NU Idol com­pe­ti­tion last month. The ball­game is part of Northeastern’s Senior Week programming.

In the first round of the NU Idol com­pe­ti­tion, which was held in March, stu­dents per­formed songs of their choosing. Top per­formers moved on to the second round, in which they had to sing the Star-​​Spangled Banner.

In the opening round, Ben­nett sang an a cap­pella ver­sion of Adele’s “One and Only” — at the sug­ges­tion of a friend.

The lyrics really spoke to me,” she said. “A lot of young girls have the expe­ri­ence of love and heartbreak.”

Ben­nett, who describes her­self as a “jazz musi­cian, through and through,” began taking piano lessons at age 7, when her mother noticed her singing ability. At North­eastern, she is part of the Unity Gospel Ensemble, which afforded her the oppor­tu­nity two years ago to sing with the Boston Pops. She’s also a member of the North­eastern Uni­ver­sity Choral Society and per­forms at after­HOURS and other local venues.

But a co-​​op last year at Reser­voir Media Man­age­ment in New York City really opened her eyes to the music industry. Ben­nett con­tacted record labels, researched up-​​and-​​coming artists and even got to meet Shaggy, a reggae artist who offered advice on the busi­ness side of the music industry and encour­aged her to follow her own mind and heart.

It was a great oppor­tu­nity to see how the music busi­ness works and to get a better under­standing of how to place your­self and your music, and the kinds of people you need to meet,” she said.

After grad­u­a­tion, Ben­nett plans to move to New York to build her music career.

My expe­ri­ences at North­eastern have made me an all-​​around better person and a better musi­cian,” she said. “I’m ready for a bigger pond.”
