I've been around a long time, more than 90 years, and I have heard the national anthem sung hundreds if not thousands of times. But the rendition prior to the All Star Game was one of the worst.
The national anthem should be sung as it is written musically, which in turn makes the meaning of the words much more effective.
Today's singers, using the word loosely, seem to think they have to have their own rendition in order to make an impression.
They sure do.
