The National Anthem

I admit. Being a choir and band student at one time, our National Anthem is hard. Hard to sing. Hard to play. And, maybe sometimes, hard to forget the words. 

 

 

 

So, yesterday, when I posted the video of the four ladies singing “The Star Spangled Banner,” I was a little harsh. More power to them for getting in front of an international audience to sing their hearts out for our country.

Having said that, the interwebs have been up a storm in ways the National Anthem should be sang. No, not just sang. SANG!

 

 

Like this one. Almost two years ago, 16-year-old Marlana VanHoose, sang the National Anthem before a UK women’s basketball game. Not only is she blind, she can run with the best of them. 

 

 

 

 

And if you need more National Anthem perfection, two words. Whitney. Goosebumps.

 

 

 

 

I love this one from Faith Hill, too…

 

 

 

 

 

Anyhow, USA. USA. USA!
