I read somewhere that P!nk watched Whitney Houston’s performance of the national anthem.
It was a famous rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XXV in 1991.
Since then P!nk wanted to sing then anthem at the super bowl.
… and that she did!
There was a time when listening to this anthem gave me chills.
The reason I post this today is because P!nk sang at the superbowl and killed it.
P!nk took the grand stage at Super Bowl LII to sing the national anthem just before kickoff where she paid homage to her “idol,” Whitney Houston.
This Super Bowl holds a special significance to the Grammy-winning artist as she is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, having spent the lead-up to the game posting snaps of her children and family rooting for the team.
Pink Nails the National Anthem Before Super Bowl LII, Despite the Flu
Despite a well-publicized battle with the flu in the days before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia-area native Pink positively nailed the National Anthem.
Clad in a satiny white outfit and with bright blonde hair, the three-time Grammy winner was true to her badass image, removing a throat lozenge just before she began singing (and setting off a torrest of Internet memes in the process).
She played loose with the song’s timing, occasionally hitting a note just inside the tempo set by the accompanying orchestra, but hit every note with ease, at times breaking up a note or toying with the phrasing, possibly in an effort to sidestep the challenges of singing with the flu, but her voice was strong and on-point and she had little trouble holding notes.
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
