Few things in sports spark more reaction than the rendition of the national anthem at a major event. Like, for example, the NBA All-Star Game.
Last year’s Star Spangled Banner went viral on social media for some not-so-good reasons. Fergie’s rendition of the song was, well, different.
Tonight’s national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte was performed by Anthony Hamilton. His version is sparking some much better reactions.

Check out the reaction from the guitarist at the end of the song:
