Wasn't Gladys Knight Fantastic Singing the Anthem Last Night?!

Gladys Knight looked so beautiful last night at the Super Bowl.  She was absolutely gorgeous -- and her rendition of the National Anthem brought tears to my eyes.  What a great performance!!

Nutty, OCD bull headed perfectionistic life long musician weighing in.

My opinion- I LOVED IT! 

Did I love it more or less than My legendary Whitney’s? Nope, very very different, but the same sense of love from me.

Would it be different and equally amazing if Denise Graves or Kristen Chenowith had sung it? Yes, just fabulously different.

 

Huge, HUGE CHEERS to Gladys Knight!!!!!

Another thumbs up.  I have always liked her voice.  On another note....I thought that dress was beautiful!

She was stunning and her arrangement was just right.

Loved her cape sleeves and the shoes were beautiful.

She is so lovely & talented & classy.

If you didn't see it (I  missed it live), there's a video on youtube.

 

I also think she is the "Bee" on The Masked Singer.

I agree @violann -- I don't think Whitney Houston's rendition will EVER be topped.  That was a once-in-a-lifetime performance.

 

Denise Graves would be an excellent choice too (I love her).

 

Back to Gladys -- for someone who has been around as long as she has, she looked and sounded great.  She kept the song in her range, and didn't try to perform what I call "vocal summersaults."  She was very classy, prepared, and respectful of the National Anthem.
