    It gave me goosebumps. I don't think many singers will put their hearts into that song like Military personnel will. Bulge.

    That was our National Anthem! The way it should be sung. It shouldn't be an entertainment spectacle, by being changed for a personal version or gain, IMO. It seems that is what it has become, anytime the military is not performing it.

    While I think Whitney Houston's rendition was close to this version, it at that time in our history had special emotional value, and was sung with that emotion, and with her fantastic, powerful voice, making that particular instance very special. I remember very clearly, how moving, emotionally it was.

    This was being sung by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

    He wasnt in the choir or the glee club in college.

    Think the supporting singers might have been under a little pressure? It will make a story they will tell their kids.
