This statement proves the point I was making. ;)

True, but to be professional, someone else must feel your services have monetary value.

Well, that kind of echo's what I just said or no? I highly doubt anyone is going to simply come up to you and say hey, here's five grand because you sing.


I don't know the situation on how a singer is selected, I just know the girl didn't deserve to be booed. I think that's disgraceful to our anthem and displaces a negative tone on our country's lack of appreciation of someone trying their best. She tried and I'm sure she gave it her best shot. Maybe it wasn't good, maybe it was... bottom line she tried and as fellow American's I think we should have supported her better. To boo in that situation --in my opinioni-- is hypocritical of what we tell our children.

You guys are very touchy about your anthem :p.

Half the time only the players on the field (soccer) sing it over here (without mics, ofcourse), and when someone sings it, it doesn't seem to be that big a deal. (Although, I can't remember someone ever 'butchering' our anthem)

Since the terrorist attack we have had alot more feeling about our anthem.
Before that attack, i think alot of people felt like the anthem was just something done before the start of a atheletic event. Then it became a song that brought us all together. It stands for something now. (It always did to me, but it seems it is to most people now)

I don't know that anyone is saying it doesn't mean anything. I just think booing someone who is trying to do their best with someone so near and dear to us as our anthem is ... not right.

You missunderstand Zero..........i meant before 9/11 most people didn't take the anthem seriously.
If you read the previous posts in this thread, you would see i agree 100% with you on booing being wrong.

Yeah. I guess I'm one of the few who have always taken it seriously. I remember in chorus (shut up) and when we sang that one I always tried harder because it meant something more to me.

I was raised a Jehovah's Witness, so it means LOTS to me. I wasn't allowed to sing it or even stand for it when i was a kid.
That makes me appreciate it alot more now. After we got out of that cult, i asked my Mom why it was wrong to love my country, to honor the anthem and the flag. You know what she told me? She said "You know what? I never understood that either."
We were brain washed, plain and simple.
I LOVE my country, and show it every chance i get.
