I love going out to different sports venues and events to perform our trumpet duet version of the National Anthem.  We have performed for the Binghamton Mets, Binghamton Senators, Binghamton University Bearcats, Harlem Globetrotters and have played at the famed Madison Square Garden.

I am always on line looking at different National Anthems to try and improve our version.  And, in my quest, I have found some great versions and some not-so-great ones.

So, for my premiere blog, 'Patriotic Wednesday' I am posting a great performance of The Star Spangled Banner!  I think you will agree that it doesn't get much better than this one!

It is Whitney Houston performing her version of The Star Spangled Banner for the Super Bowl XXV in Florida in 1991:

God Bless America!
