That would be the "Queen of Soul", 74 years old and one of my all time favorites! R-E-S-P-E-C-T will be 50 years old in 2017, released in 1967!

It was. I didn't like it either.

Even the black players on the field had a look on their faces like WTF? Kinda felt sorry for the people saluting the whole time, what seemed like seven minutes. Pretty sad indeed.

Most of these more recent renditions of the NA are molested in one way or another during these NFL games.

On the contrary, I thought the one just sung in the Steelers/Colts game was pretty darn good.

I despise it when performers try to "spin" the NA with their own touch. It's flat out disrespectful. Just sing it like it was for over 200 years. A six minute soul rendition was absolutely horrible. The old bat should be fined for the way she sung it. WTF was with the mink coat, YOU ARE INSIDE!!!! She needs to retire already. Go away if you are going to perform like that

The value of football is the play on the field during game time, not before it, not after it, and certainly not anything any of the players or anyone else associated with the NFL has to say or express off the field of play during actual game time.

I ate my whole meal before she was done J/K, but it was very long, she's the Queen, so I'll give her a pass
