I love the National Anthem. It is the greatest way to kickstart a big game/event or really any occasion. I love that everyone takes off their hats, puts their hands on their hearts, and I LOVE when the crowd sings along. It is a challenging song to sing, which makes it even greater! It’s a fantastic song no matter who sings it. I love when a little kid has their shining moment singing in front of the crowd, when a superstar belts it out (Beyonce at the Super Bowl), and when it plays at the Olympics gold medal ceremony.
There are SO many good ones, but here are some of my favorite national anthem moments:
