Ind. Girl's National Anthem Rendition Stirs Flap
An Indiana school district that told a black teenager to perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" in a "traditional way" after receiving complaints about her performance is drawing questions now about whether the complaints and directive were racially motivated.
If that video is the version that people are complaining about, then some folks need to re-evaluate their priorities, imo
I think the young lady has a beautiful voice & rendition and it's much more respectful than some versions I've seen/heard from "professional artists".
"Principal Jeff Henderson told The Herald-Times in a statement that people had complained that while the words to the anthem were the same, the tune was unrecognizable." :confused:
Give me a break!
