Aretha Franklin National Anthem 2016 Thanksgiving Football, The Detroit Lions vs The Vikings


Aretha Franklin opened the Thanksgiving NFL
game between the Vikings and the Lions with an extended rendition of the Star Spangled
Banner that lasted a dazzling 4 minutes and 35 seconds. It started off with her fixing her mic. And then it seemed as though she was improvising
on the piano. She swirled around with her notes. She went as far as to repeat a lot of the
lines, like “the home of the brave”. That was like the longest ending to a song
ever. Fans are divided about the performance, with
some saying it was too long while others feel it was just right. But it seemed as though the footballers were
feeling it. In my opinion, no one could really sing along
and get into it. And she couldn’t really hit those high notes. She kind of sounded like my cat when I accidentally
step on his tail. But it wasn’t all bad. Her fur jacket was on point – Sorry PETA
– and she can play the piano extremely well. The Ringer @ringer writes:
“Bad news: Football is cancelled Good news: 13-hour Aretha Franklin concert. Leave it on through dinner. Everybody will love it.” Smoochie Middleton @VinceBednarik tweeted “Aretha: Let’s sing it short and sweet,
just like we rehearsed Inner Aretha: Drag it out till the Cowboys
game” Jemele Hill @jemelehill tweeted “Between
Aretha’s national anthem and the family member that prays for 45 minutes, we ain’t eating
until Saturday” What did you think of the performance? Let me know in the comments below and don’t

  1. Ms. Franklin sang in the traditional call and response style of the Gospel church. That was the church in which she was raised. Your generation would find it too long since your attention spans are much shorter than we older folks – lol – … and the Lions won the game.

  2. wowah no respeck what so ever ,I see why nothing is never done right these days no one gives a shit from this generation …

  3. Yeah Yeah I heard her sing it and I thought"Sombody stop sticking that cactus 🌵 up that old lady's asshole!"She sounded awful,like she was in severe pain.

  4. Some of you are a little slow so let me help you out. She was sending a message to all the youth who disrespect this country. She was there for the struggle. This is the land of the "FREE" and the "BRAVE".
