Default "Disrespectful" Version of National Anthem

http://www.fox59.com/news/wxin-bloom...,6845757.story

This is nuts. 16yo with amazing voice, sure she embellishes the tune, but to call it disrespectful?

What say you?

I don't see any issue. She did a good job IMO. She did not twist any words, and the melody was not skewed too much either. Now, if you start to change the words and change the melody so much that it's unrecognizable, then I have a problem.

I did not see what the problem was. Just about eveyone who sings the National Anthem has there own little changes they do it. I did not see her grab her crotch and spit after finishing it.

The actual news story said parents complained it was unrecognizable and disrespectful to military members, current and those who died serving our country. She was told to change the way she sang it. She did not.

I say good for her.

Sadly, I think there is one factor at play here.

Better than many if not most versions at big time sporting events.

Exactly. For a 16 year old she did a beautiful job.

I wish I could send her a letter of support.

Well it seems everyone has pretty much hit the nail on the head with what the underlying issue could be, and it's a shame.

How on earth can you know what some people have done with their own versions of the SSB and then say that this girl disrespected it?

The people of Bloomington should be ashamed.

I see no "direspect" -- other than those who are complaining.

I'm not sure what I am missing. At least she wasn't the clown at our minor league hockey game that started to beat box, and making scratching noises at the end.

Every time I here the National Anthem or Taps I get goosbumps and my eyes water. There are so many individuals who sacrificed everything for this country who will never hear those played again except from beyond the pearly gates.

Every single individual who is complaining about that young girl singing it the way she did should be ashamed of themselves. The has the courage to go forward, probably in front of many of her peers, at such a young age and sing the National Anthem.

You know what pisses me off the most is that there is nothing wrong with what she did and yet she gets banned from singing it again!?!?!?!? I HIGHLY doubt that there were any current or former servicemembers complaining about her singing about Old Glory.

Awww man...I'm twitching just sitting here

I didn't hear or see any part of the song as being disrespectful.
