    The above link is easily one of my favorites as well.  Considering the bombing happened 2 days previously and then the shooting/capture of the suspects happened a few days after this.  Add in that everyone in the building starting to sing along right away, just made for an awesome moment of unity.

  • My two favourites.  Not a fan at all of my own nations anthem which is frankly a dirge (we would be better suited with "Jerusalem")

    @dochielomn i was there! It wasn't until I watched the replay when we got home that I realized Renee Rancourt only led off the anthem and let us take it all the way til the end -- I just thought we were drowning out his voice. What a night, such a show of unity in such a dark time.

    Absolutely. Have a look at it for their Rugby internationals. The crowd really add to it

    Christina Aguilera killed it. Such an amazing voice.

    @TaraC73, very cool.  I remember watching the game on TV and then watched the replay of the national anthem a few different times over the next couple of days.  Although, if I also remember correctly, the Bruins got waxed that game so you probably could have left early (unless you were a Sabres fan). 
  • It's one thing for an actual singer to do well singing the anthem, you'd hope/expect as much, but Dr. Drew? Who woulda thunk?
