Christina Aguilera has been invited to sing on June 18, the US National Anthem at the Brooklyn Cyclones’ Municipal Credit Union stadium (MCU Park) on Opening Day. Yet to have accepted their kind offer to sing the Star Spangled Banner, Ms. Aguilera, a native of New York City, should consider accepting a copy of the lyrics, from the Cyclones, as they do with anyone who sings the anthem.
Also, trying to entice the diva to do a do-over are The Syracuse Crunch, a minor league ice hockey team. The Crunch want her to sing before its Feb. 19 game at the Onondaga County War Memorial against the Rochester Americans.
Ms.Aguilera, has apologized for her “
horrendous” Super Bowl performance, saying that she hoped “everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
The only thing that came through was her piercing screaming which might have been enjoyable had I been as drunk and deaf as those attending the Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium. If she does accept the offers to sing at these sporting events I certainly hope the owners of these teams ask her to sing the US National Anthem without any ad libs and embellishments. Just sing the damn anthem correctly Christina et al.
