National Anthem at SuperBowl

Uploaded: Feb 6, 2011

I really have no clue who the woman is who "sung" the Star Spangled Banner prior to the start of the game today.

I do suspect that she was making more than minimum wage to perform in front of a stadium packed with 100 thousand plus people, let alone those watching and listening worldwide. I also have the impression that she is a professional entertainer, albeit one I know nothing about.

How insulting to this country and a debasement to an annual tradition, the SuperBowl, for a highly paid entertainer to screw up our country's national anthem in such circumstances.
