Any singer will tell you that the National Anthem is, technically, one of the hardest songs to sing. Never mind that you’re often doing it in front of a big crowd, and depending on the event, a crowd in the millions when you factor in the TV audience.
With that being said, Natalie Grant absolutely crushed the National Anthem on Monday night before the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia.
Here’s a snippet.
For those not familiar, Grant is a Nine-time Grammy nominee and has become an icon in Christian & Gospel music. According to her website, she has garnered more than 500 million streams and multiple number #1 albums and singles on the Billboard Charts, she is also a respected author and philanthropist. She is the co-founder of Hope for Justice, a non-profit organization in the fight against human trafficking, which has 32 offices across 9 countries and 5 continents and has helped 102,803 children in the last year.
And for those of you not familiar with Grant, if you watch that Anthem and aren’t impressed, I don’t know if I can ever take your music recommendation on anything.
