Music Monday: National Anthem by the cast of Glee
I am a fan of the show Glee so my opinion is admittedly biased. However, I think that the cast's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the World Series was one of the purest ones I've heard. In past years, many artists have tried to prove their vocal chops by singing the song with all kinds of vocal acrobatics. This clean and simple version performance made me think about the meaning of the words and what Francis Scott Key must have felt that inspired him to write the poem that became our national anthem.
