The actress and singer-songwriter recorded her performance from home.

Rita Wilson sang a beautiful rendition of the national anthem on Sunday, nearly four weeks after she and husband Tom Hanks revealed their coronavirus diagnoses. 

The actress and singer-songwriter marked her first performance since her coronavirus recovery at NASCAR's iRacing Pro Invitational Series Race. 

Wilson -- whose performance was reportedly filmed by 24-year-old son Truman Hanks from their Los Angeles home -- looked to be in good spirits. She wowed in a red top and matching red leather jacket, completing her look with a scarf and blue jeans. 

The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series was held virtually for drivers from the NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, ARCA, the NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series and the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. It served as an esports alternative during a time when NASCAR stars are away from the track due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Hanks and Wilson revealed on March 11 that they had tested positive for COVID-19 while in Australia for pre-production on Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film. After their stay at a Queensland hospital, the couple self-quarantined in a home they rented nearby. By March 27, they were back home in Los Angeles. Days later, Wilson celebrated being a "COVID-19 survivor."  

"Today, March 29, I am celebrating the beauty of this life, the blessings God has given , and my continued good health, even now as a COVID 19 survivor. Please take a moment today to acknowledge the amazing creation your bodies are and to thank it for doing so much," she wrote on Instagram.
