Maurice Cheeks & Natalie Gilbert sing The National Anthem

Last night was the NBA All-Star Game, and if there was an all-star team of NBA national anthem singers, the coach would be Maurice Cheeks, who saved the ass of Natalie Gilbert in this clip that still brings a little mist to our eyes.

On this President's Day, feel free to sing along to the "Star Spangled Banner". Why not?
