Here is video of Mr. Lewis Shaeffer doing an outstanding job of singing two verses of the National Anthem today at Herman Cain’s Announcement that he is running for President of the United States.
This is the same Mr. Shaeffer who thrilled Tea Party Patriots in June of 2010 when he spontaneously stood and sang the second verse of the National Anthem at a Tea Party Rally where Herman Cain was doing a Q & A (see video below). What a nice touch by Herman Cain to invite him to sing the Anthem today!
Here is video from last night of singer Christina Aguilera botching the words of the National Anthem before Super Bowl XLV in Cowboys Stadium.
When she got to “o’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming….,” she instead said, “what so proudly we watched, at the twilight’s last gleaming….”
Like so many who perform the National Anthem, Aguilera forgot rule number one – It’s not about you – it’s about the message of the song itself. In the process of over-singing the song, she forgot the words.
NOTE: This video at YouTube already has over 2 Million views – just since last night.
Here is video of the opening of the 8/28 “Restoring Honor” Rally hosted by Glenn Beck at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The video shows the rally being opened with the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem.
