Aretha Franklin took her time singing the national anthem before the Lions-Vikings game yesterday. The Queen of Soul drew out the vocals, stretching the song to four-and-a-half minutes! When Lady Gaga’s sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl, that was considered one of the longer versions and it was was two minutes and 20 seconds. But I have to say, Aretha could stretch the tune to 20 minutes and I’d still listen. Long live the Queen!
What did you think? Too long or love it?
Every now and then, I’ll watch reaction videos and this one was by far by favourite. There’s no denying this guy loves Aretha Franklin’s performance.
