Singing the National Anthem

Old NFO over at Nobody Asked Me stated an opinion in an article about all the attempts by “singing stars” of this great nation trying to sing our national anthem . . . . and failing big time!  I am printing the first paragraph of his short article here.  To read the rest of this story, please go to his site at Nobody Asked Me.  I’m sure if you have ever listened to these “singers” garglers trying to find the right key, you too will agree with Old NFO and myself.  Check it out.

Singing the National Anthem…

With all the kindness I can muster, I give this one piece of advice to the next pop star who is asked to sing the national anthem at a sporting event: save the vocal gymnastics and the physical gyrations for your concerts. Just sing this song the way you were taught to sing it in kindergarten — straight up, no styling.



Operation National Anthem

It’s called Operation National Anthem and it should be as important to all American Citizens as it is to our Veterans and active Military.  Please do me and yourself a favor and watch this important message.  Find it here.  If you can arrange to have this short recording played at your community meetings and/or school sporting events wherever the Anthem is played, my fellow Veterans and I would greatly appreciate it.  If you don’t care for the first recording near the top, scroll down near the bottom of the page for a dozen military members to select from.  Help us in our effort to bring back the pride, dignity and patriotism in our Country and our National Anthem that we Americans and military veterans still very much believe in.  Please!  And may He bless and watch over us all in these trying times.  Amen.
