Five Year Old - Star Spangled Banner

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 midwestern main streets, covered bridges, the Grand Canyon, and rockets being sent to space.

When the song was over the screen would show a test pattern and a steady, annoying, tone would sound, waking you up if you had fallen asleep with the tv on.

The Internet, though, never goes to sleep, it only wakes up.

And when you wake up, you should have some music to make your coffee by.

This morning we bring you a five year old singer who comes in a little late and almost permanently disables his piano accompaniment.
