El Cuatro de Julio

Happy 4th of July!!!.......

I figured that since other blogs and sites are wishing people a Happy 4th of July and reminding them of what a great country we live in or whatever, I'd do something a little different.

First, I'd like to share with you this SPECTACULAR performance of The National Anthem, by "pop sensation" Kat DeLuna. (I highly advise you watch the whole thing, but if you are lazy, skip to 1:45 and listen 'til the end.)



Are the last few seconds not the funniest thing ever? I LOLed for a few minutes on that one.

And I'd also like to share a line from Angels in America, which I finally watched recently.

"The white cracker who wrote the National Anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word free to a note so high nobody could reach it."

Nobody but Kat DeLuna, obviously.

Happy 4th y'all!

Happy 4th. I hate when singers alter a national anthem to "jazz it up". Sing it the way it's written people. It's not your interpretation.

I've never heard of that person before, but she seemed like she probably had chops.

Yes, she was terribly out of tune, but it might have been the result of any of the following: no monitor or a bad monitor, not having sung in a stadium before and pitching herself to the echo, illness or nervousness.

I can't sing in tune for about 24 hours after I fly or drive over mountains because my ears don't pop. The rest of the time, I have great pitch.

Kat DeWhoNow? That was sensational all right.

There were some parts where her voice sounded like farts. I'll show you how my butts sings the National Anthem!

Were they booing at the end? lmao

Yay! Angels in America reference! We should watch it again so we can get all the symbolism and stuff.

In her defense, it is a difficult song to sing, but I'm with Tam, don't add a ton of runs, just sing the song.

That was a very...strenuous performance. Staying true to her animal-inspired name by growling throughout--commendable?
