Destiny's Child Sings the National Anthem

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Every morning at 6am we will be posting a video of someone singing or playing the "Star Spangled Banner".

Back in the day television stations would end their "broadcast day" with an instrumental of the National Anthem accompanied by video of classic cars being policed, and olde fashioned barber shop, the Liberty Bell, and buffaloes running in slow motion.

When the song was over, the screen would flicker and a test pattern would appear, followed by a steady, high-pitched tone, waking you up if you had fallen asleep with your clothes on in front of the tv. Again. Stoner.

The Internet, though, never goes to sleep, it only gets regulated and stolen via the wi-fi.

But when you wake up to it, you should have some music to groove to.

This morning we bring you Destiny's Child singing the anthem from an NBA All-Star game.
