It is July 4th!!
Today's song in my Driving Around Karaoke Independence Week series is the United States of America's very own National Anthem - The Star Spangled Banner!
History of this day:
Variously known as the Fourth of July and Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.

July 4th is a Day we Americans Celebrate our Independence and gather in unity and Remember.
I have always wanted to sing this song at a Baseball Game. It is a tradition that our National Anthem is performed before ANY sports event. We remember why we are a great nation. The words are mighty and the spirit behind them is forceful!
Many celebreties and singers have sang this song at our great sports event - the Super Bowl - but no one can top the amazing, remarkable singer - Whitney Houston. Check out her version at the 1991 Super Bowl XXV
