The United States’ national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” is familiar to most. The tune is unmistakable, and its lyrics are enough to bring a patriot to his or her feet.
“The Star-Spangled Banner” is, of course, often sung or played before any major sporting event, for example. The expectation is that the person singing the national anthem will do so beautifully and with respect. While we can all agree that some renditions are better than others, the belief is that the performer will give it his or her very best!
So when a student of an Ashford, Alabama high school found herself without a microphone, she made the best out of the circumstances.
As it turned out, she didn’t need one! In the clip below, you can see that the crowd falls silent as soon as she opens her mouth. While they realized that she was singing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” they were probably also mesmerized by her stunning voice!
The teen sings her rendition of the national anthem flawlessly, and people were so enthralled by the performance that they gave her a standing ovation before she was done singing! At the very end of the clip, you can see another girl run up to the singer to give her a hug.
Now, watch the clip below to see this young girl sing her heart out!
