National Anthem: Tradition or Style?

Recommended Posts

They should quit hiring people to sing the national anthem and just replay this on the jumbotron every Super Bowl:

It has never been done better than Whitney. Still to this day gives me goosebumps. I love the end when the look on her face tells you that she knows she nailed it.

as long as it doesn't fall into cliches, i'm cool.

alicia keys seems to have some good musical sensabilities. not a walking vocal cliche like so many singers tend to be from any genre. the girl's got some ray charles in her. i'm anxious to see what she does with it. i don't expect it to come with a ton of over the top vocal flourishes, which happens waaayyy too much.

i've got no problem with people trying to make it their own, as long as they're trying to make it truly their own and not copy someone else who made it their own.

That is why I always like Whitney's. It had enough of her stamp on it to make it her own without becoming pretentious and overdoing with the vocal acrobats.

I am a huge fan of Alicia Keys so I hope she does a great job and I think she will.

Me personally, tradition.

I didn't like the fact that Brady nor BB had their hands over their hearts yesterday, among many others I'm sure.

I don't mind. It's all done in respect, just a different interpretation.

Now when you can't remember the words or complete fug it up--thats what I'd call disrespectful. It's only the first verse, learn it.
