View the rendition of the National Anthem above at this past Wednesday’s Sabres/Bruins game in Boston. 18000+ singing the National Anthem proudly will just give you chills. A great example of how sports can unite and bring out the best in us in times of turmoil.

Well done Boston.

Beyonce Statement At Super Bowl About Inauguration Performance of National Anthem (Video)

Says she didn’t have time to rehearse with the orchestra before her performance at President Obama’s Inauguration. I’m sure Kelly Clarkson was able to rehearse as she sang live. You can clearly see in this Instagram photo Beyonce posted that she worked with the U.S. Marine Corps Band on the pre-recorded track so, how much rehearsal was necessary?

10 Year Old Shows Christina Aguilera How To Sing National Anthem (Video)

This was in a word awesome. Pay attention Christina Aguilera.

10 year-old Julia Dale wowed the crowd at American Airlines arena last night before game 2 of the Heat/Mavericks game.

The Palm Beach Post reported:

Her rousing rehearsal three hours before tipoff not only brought a halt to all action inside AmericanAirlines Arena, but also led ABC’s director to request that she do it just like that again for real, because he was going to make sure she was part of the national telecast.

Not that you’d ever sense it strictly by hearing her powerful voice, but Dale is a mere 4 feet tall and certainly could never post up against the man who performed the anthem on the sax during a Heat-Mavs game in ’06 – Clarence “Big Man” Clemons of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.
