I was away this weekend, so I’m coming in late to the story about the female singer at the Memorial Cup (Canadian Hockey Tournament) forgetting the words to the US National Anthem. Granted it is a very difficult song, even for Americans, but with weeks to practice and singing being your thing? Okay, so it’s a really hard song. Lots of octaves. Just thank your lucky stars they decided one stanza was enough (FSK actually wrote four).
Anyway, I wanted to test my knowledge of the lyrics while I was driving to work this morning (hence the background noise).
WARNING: I am not a singer. This is for research purposes only.
A capella because I couldn’t find a radio station that was going off air at 7:30am (that’s a joke for the old folks out there…you know who you are).
Jill - consider this your birthday present (I’m SO sorry).
