Renee Fleming – The Best National Anthem Ever ???

Renee Although Renee Flemings rendition of the national anthem was amazing i think Whitney Houston's version in 1991 may have been better. I will concede in my opinion that they are definitely #1 and #2. I'm going to post both and let you decide...

  1. Fleming at number 1. She did it live — not in the safety of the studio days earlier, out in the pressure, no editing help, no chance to do another take, giving the fans what they deserved to see for their money, and in spectacular fashion.

  2. Musical tastes aside, ask yourself if you would still be ranking Whitney number 1 if it were she who had to do the performance ilve; but Fleming could record hers days earlier in a sound studio in front of only a few technicians, who had the option of editing or doing multiple takes if the first didn’t go so well, then “singing” into a dead mic so that basically no one could hear her? As to lip-synching being some kind of accepted norm these days, tell that to Elton John, who said this in 2004 about Madonna: “Since when has lip-synching been live?” John said. “Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay 75 pounds to see them should be shot.”
