Kelly Clarkson Sings The National Anthem

Yesterday morning we played a video of Clay Aiken singing the National Anthem and today we will play a video of Ms. Kelly Clarkson singing the same tune.

This video was shot last year at a Boston Celtics game and what's interesting is those people were louder for the anthem than the entire Staples Center was last week when we saw the Lakers lose to the Jailblazers.

What's up with that?

Another Idol singing the anthem tomorrow...
