It’s generally an honor to get the opportunity to sing the National Anthem for an event. There are several celebrities and pop stars that have been granted the distinctive honor and some were great (i.e. Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye) and some not so great (i.e. Roseanne Barr or Michael Bolton writing the words in his hands and forgetting the words).
During this past weekends NBA All-Star Game (2/18/18), former Black Eyed Peas singer, Fergie, had only one thing to do, sing the National Anthem good.
From all indications, that was not the case and she’s finally had a chance to speak on the event saying, “I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem, and last night, I wanted to try something special for the NBA. “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
