This one is making the rounds today — no doubt inspired by Beyonce’s (slightly) ornamented version of the National Anthem at yesterday’s inaugural ceremony. If you’re a musician, you totally get it. I picked it up from Facebook friend Ben McNamara (he of the passionate near-kiss featured on last year’s “Spring Awakening” 7 cover), and George Takei shared it about an hour ago, the true mark of going viral.
Favorite “Star Spangled Banner” video: Bee staffer Kent Gaston shares his classic pick on the jump featuring coach Mo Cheeks. Very, very heartwarming.
