On February 13, the Los Angeles Rams took on the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 56, but the one of the highlights of the evening took place, even before the game started. Mickey Guyton, the Texas-born singer-songwriter, was set to perform the National Anthem, prior to the game and in my opinion, it was a phenomenal performance!
Guyton’s rendition of the National Anthem has quickly drawn comparisons to Whitney Houston’s Super Bowl 25 performance, a rendition that may fans say is the best National Anthem, ever. Mickey Guyton is joined during the performance by a 10 person choir, which accentuates Guyton’s vocals and caused many of the people I was sitting next to to simply exclaim, “WOW”.
Mickey Guyton may have previously been best known for her ACM solo performance of “What Are You Going To Tell Her”, but the acclaim she is receiving from performing the National Anthem, may soon surpass that.
One of the biggest compliments I, personally, heard on Super Bowl sunday, came from a military veteran, stated, “That is one of the best National Anthems, I’ve ever heard.” I would have to wholeheartedly agree.
