Alicia Keys Singing a New Version of the American Anthem for Superbowl XLVII


Alicia Keys has been tapped to sing the National Anthem for this year's Superbowl and Alicia says she's planning a whole new version...

In a red carpet interview at the Sundance Film Festival, where Alicia is presenting the film she produced, 'The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete', Alicia explains,
"I'm really excited about it, I can't even lie. I have to rehearse it totally, as if it's a brand new song, because it is actually a brand new song in the style that I'll deliver it. I'm actually rehearsing it like a maniac."

Okay imma say it..... U need a whole new version bc we know ur dried put vocals couldn't sing the original.... Well scream .... Checkmate bitch

How selfish. Now none of the fans will be able to sing along.

Alicia is delusional. It will not be a brand new song just because she changes the delivery.

On the other hand, her version will probably be easier for her to sing.

By a law signed on March 3, 1931 by President Herbert Hoover, "The Star-Spangled Banner" was adopted as the national anthem of the United States of America. (Wiki. 1/21/2013)

In 2013, based on her own personal preference, Alicia Keys decides to change it.

I swear, some people need to have their artistic licenses revoked.

She can sing the song how she she wants to.
However, the yt audience will respond accordingly.
They will promptly boo her ass like they did Kat De Luna.

singing the national anthem is not actually supposed to be a real performance. notice that the announce says that the person "will now lead us in the singing of the national anthem."

Glad I wasnt the first person to say it. Yea I was scared as soon as heard she was singing. No way she can hit those notes. And I hope she doesnt bring that damn piano on the field.

Next year we will be subjected to some country singer singing the national anthem. And some old ass has been doing the halftime show because Alicia wants to do too much to the national anthem. And while I like Beyonce, I'm sure her barely there outfit that she will wear will upset some white parenting group talking about their kids shouldn't have to see that on tv during a family game. Can't wait for Feb 4 to hear why the black girls f--ked everthing up.

Never saw why folks try to customized the anthem,you don't receive royalties from it.

BEY AND ALICIA ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME KIND OF PERSON SINCE THEY BOTH HAVE THE SAME WHORING VALUES.

You bet ur ass she's singing a new version of the National Anthem. It's called the 'scream and hollar' rendition in A minor.

“She calls her album, ‘Songs In A Minor,’ and all of the songs are in E and D,” he explained. “I don’t think she knows her grammatic skill, personally. I think she’s ‘The Gong Show.’ When she did the Donny Hathaway song in front of millions of people and fu**ed it up, that just goes to show you right there what’s going on…What about Rachelle Ferrell, or Lalah Hathaway? What about all these serious bitches that can really sing? Alicia Keys? Because Clive Davis eats the best See’s Candies and gives the best whatever, and wants to show Whitney [Houston] that she ain’t shit, yeah, he’s going to put his effort in Alicia Keys.”

-- Rick James

If she changes one word I hope it's the death of her career. Who voted on a new anthem ? Sing the National Anthem or keep it moving. You aren't the half time act !You aren't performing !

All keys can do is sing the entire song in Alto...cause she can't hit any high notes!

On the other hand, her version will probably be easier for her to sing.

Exactly!She's changing it cause she can't sing....Watch it all be sung in Alto(deep voice).

Keys was supposed to be a one hit wonder,with "Fallen." She is delusional and convinced she is a worthy star...

1. Alicia could never really sing. She can carry a tune. Like most people, she can sing a limited range of notes, but is never really in tune with the key of the music.

2. She is sings the lower notes flat, and the higher notes sharp, and anything higher than the one octave she doesn't sound so bad in, she screams and screeches trying to reach the notes.

3. She got pushed on the public because the industry thought she was marketable as a "pretty girl", but they had to clean her up, because she was rough around the edges.

4. India.Arie is a much better singer, and a more original artist than Alicia, but she didn't have the complexion for the connection. India had a fresh sound with a lot of variety, while Alicia started out doing reboots of 70s soul classics, basically singing songs that people liked anyway.

5. Alicia calls herself experimenting with "new" sounds now, but her attempts to make her sound more "pop" it's now really obvious to a lot more people that she can't sing. She should just stick to playing piano-- she is really a classical pianist, not an R&B singer.

Oh God, I hope not. Alicia, I beg of you PLEEEASE DON'T. You are going to ruin it for EVERYONE! Gosh, is there a petition started against this yet...if so, tell me where to sign?

Just step up to the mic and sing the song, leave all the runs you want to do to your own music. Why do artists think that we appreciate and enjoy the changes that they do when we don't even recognize the song after they are done.

Ok, firstly, the fact that she's an Alto, and 'can't hit high notes' is meaningless!! Both Brandy, and Monica are altos, but they kill the anthem. It's just that she can't sing, period!! Nevermind, the note, or octave, if she'd learn to sing within herself, then she'd sound a lot of better!!

Anonymous said...

Well damn! Now I feel retarded because I thought she was a really good singer, I thought she sung super boring songs so I didn't really check for her too often, so all this time I've been crediting her as good because I liked Fallen, but turns out she's a off-key SCREAMER

Anonymous said...

Well, at this point I don't mind hearing her sing another song, because if hear her screaming "This girl is on fiyaaaahh", one mo' time....

The only problem I have with Alicia Keys singing is Alicia Keys cant sing

Anonymous said...

OMG @12:27 Did Rick James really say that? LMAO!!!

Maybe Alicia Keys is saying she's trying to switch it up like Marvin Gaye or R. Kelly Did. I mean she described it "as if it's a brand new song," so maybe it's a remix?

Anonymous said...

I don't know why she just has to put her spin on that song. I'm sure somebody over at Bedside Baptist could do the National Anthem justice. She's just going to piss off YT and make them wish Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood or Reba or some other "Becca" was selected for the gig. If she just wants to be different she should sing the Black National Anthem, instead of trying to remix some old stodgy ass cornball of a song. She'll probably get booed regardless. Other than that I guess the worse she can do is forget the words or sing off-key. No pun intended.

Anonymous said...

@6:29 PM....Don't care if she pisses off YT. She pisses me off throwing her head back and howling like a sick wolf. Pity is a wolf would sound better. I'd opt for 'Becca'. At least they'd hit it,quit it and clear the field.

Her wailing the Black National Anthem? Oh NO!! Blasphemy! That would be the ultimate insult. Those who have passed on would probably start flipping in their graves or reaching up to strangle her sorry, non-singing ass.

Will it be an instrumental version because that's the only way I'm listening to this shit!

This is the land of the free, land of lip sync, change the anthem how we see fit, ignore all the brave men and women who fought and still fight to protect and allow us these freedoms, allow us to lack integrity and insult them with our actions.
