Who Should Sing The National Anthem?

People are still writing about, and talking about, Christina Aguillera’s mangling of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Well, okay, Christina is a cute little thing with a great big voice, and she’s generally well-liked, and is, no doubt extremely talented. But, with all that being said, you’d think the girl would have taken some time to rehearse and get the words right. It was just sloppy and certainly didn’t reflect well on her.

Whoever is in charge of all-things-Super-Bowl should maybe give some thought as to who should sing the national anthem. Maybe they should have a song leader and have everyone in the stadium sing it. Or right now, especially since we’re fighting a war, maybe it would be fitting and appropriate to have members of the armed forces sing it. I’ll bet you anything they wouldn’t forget the words.

    I agree…The National Anthem is about leading the song rather than performing it. It is very hard to reach the notes…and the leader is the one that is to hit the notes to carry the audience through the song… Christina was so into herself as a performer that she over dramatized the thing and forgot the words. Terrible.
