Correct Singing of the National Anthem
Vanity ^ | today | sgthooper

Posted on 01/22/2012 3:55:47 PM PST by SgtHooper

So does any bimbo really prepare anymore to learn the words of the national anthem? At the start of the 49ers game, she inserted "vallantly" rather than "gallantly". Good grief.

How about a signed contract that if they flub it, they pay a penalty fee.

I missed that due to the crowd booing whenever they showed the giants on the screen. Why would you boo during the national anthem?

Times have changed. I am always bothered by those who don’t show any respect during the anthem. No removing their hats/caps, no hands on their hearts, nothing. Bad enough any time, but especially poor on national TV before a playoff game. Just no respect at all.

This video should be required viewing, with a quiz following, prior to anyone publicly singing the "Star Spangled Banner".

Thx Sgt!

If you want to enjoy the National Anthem, google Pia Toscano. She sings the correct words and her notes are amazing!

I dunno why, whatever the reason it was extremely poor taste. Perhaps what else should we expect from SF.

That didn’t bother me as much as the fact that she sang the anthem at funeral march tempo. As so many do these days.

Public events should begin with the following words:

Ladies and Gentlemen, please join in the singing of our National Anthem.

I heard Steve Tyler was pretty worthless, too. I think Carl Lewis (who was apologizing during the song) gets the award for worst, but the list of celebrities butchering the National Anthem is long and distinguished.

Not watching the game and I’m up to Post #25 and I still don’t know who was singing.

Steven Tyler sounded just as bad as I thought he would, but given his age, I figured he would at least know the words.

Steven Tyler looks (and sounds) like an old homeless woman. When I heard them announce that he’d be singing the national anthem I left the room for a few minutes. Two Kids’ Mom said he was absolutely terrible.

With very few exceptions there isn’t anyone under the age of fifty who could sing the National Anthem let alone even knows it exists.

She may have messed up that word, but she sang it with respect and had a beautiful voice. She didn’t try to turn it into a soul or rock song.

Yes, she won a Tony for the revival of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" (we took our kids to see that) and she was in the original cast of "Wicked" (IIRC).

One of the few “cassette singles” I ever bought was Whitney Houston’s Super Bowl performance. It struck a cord with the crowd and with the local radio audience the following day.

Kristin Chenoweth

I would not have heard of Kristin but for the unfortunate slip up on the lyrics. A very attractive woman indeed. We at the Great Lakes, just across from the good old USA in Canada are brushing up on the histories just lately.

Should be good for both sides as far as the tourist trade goes. Recreations of that struggle of 1812-14 are in the making. I have no doubt we will hear the Star Spangled Banner well sung. True I had to go to Wikipedia to refresh my memory. I hope note is taken of the "Rocket's Red Glare" (I hope that is right).

For it was the British warship that fired these things. The Congreve Rocket was copied from British India. Of course, the attack failed. Early WMD? Please excuse this ramble, I confess to a strange stiring of emotion at this wonderful piece. Stentorian voice.(Hang that man from the yard arm).

Still, I feel the same way at the singing of "The Maple Leaf Forever". Come to think of it - it seems Canada has banished it, I hope not. Patriotism may be on the back burners to an extent. That sort of patriotism,that is.

To self:

Yep, the old version of "The Maple Leaf Forever" has gone - except for youtube. Too British, too proud. New words about lovely mountains and rivers with a bit of credit to the French. Throw in that bloomin' KUMBIAH or whatever.

America will retain it's patriotism, of course. Thank God!

Anyone who tries to sing it without the words on a “cheat sheet” is an idiot, and deserves major damage to their career.

Sorry, no link. I watched it and immediately posted this thread. It may be on youtube somewhere, but not sure. I do agree that she overall did a real nice job, but I am so tired of these people messing up the words.

youtube gets Kristin at the August 6th 2006 opening of NASCAR races at Watkins Glen, New York State. She gets it right. About 177 "likes" and about 7 "dislikes".

Fwiw. Chenoweth is a unique surname from Cornwall, England. Chenoweths came over to the Land of the Free, well over 200 years ago. It is said most are all related by lineage.

A nice young woman she appears to be, this in a profession fraught with pitfalls.
