The Super Bowl has just announced that opera star Renee Fleming will get the honors of singing the National Anthem before the game. That is quite an honor. There have been some great and some not so great performances in the past. Sporting events always start with the anthem and we have seen quite an array of stars and everyday people get a chance to sing it. I can't imagine the honor and pressure they feel.

I am sure Ms. Fleming will do a great job. Here are some of my favs from sporting events through the years.
