Christina’s Mess Up
This is about Christina Aguiler’s mistake with the national anthem.
The national anthem isn’t something that should be changed when sung. In fact, I dislike all the singers that have changed the tune so they can show off. The national anthem was made in a way so everyone can sing along. Sadly, at things like the Super Bowl, those hired to sing the anthem like long and high notes. In this case, they even get the words wrong.
“What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming.”This is how Christina sang it. Yeah, sorry Christy, but that’s wrong. I’m not trying to be mean when I say this but you should know the national anthem. You’ve been singing it since you were seven and you’re too young to be forgetting things.
“O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,” is how it should’ve been. These are the simple words that she messed up on and caused spectators to be very unhappy with her. Again, I’m not trying to be mean, in fact, I like her music. However, as my music teacher once said, “The national anthem is for everyone. We’re not singing it to show off. We’re singing it to show our pride in our country and to let people do the same and sing along.”
So, to all the show offs out there that think singing the national anthem is a good way to show off, stop and wonder if the people will be able to sing along.So, the truth is that matters the most. So, if you’re out of tune but get the timing right then we can sing along. However, if you’re holding out notes longer than they were made to or singing so high that windows should break, don’t sing the anthem. I find that disrespectful.
