Cyndi Lauper's National Anthem Mess Up



Cyndi Lauper is the latest celebrity to mess up the words to the National Anthem. While performing the "Star Spangled Banner" at the US Open tennis tournament in New York Lauper seemed to mix up some of the words. She sort of got back on track after that, but you can tell that she noticed right away. She took to Twitter and released this statement: "Whew, I just did the anthem for the US open. It was an awesome experience. I got choked up in the middle remembering 9/11 ... The moon shone down on us and I tried to say a prayer at the same time. I hope I didn't mess up too bad. I wanted it to be comforting." Although she messed up somewhat with the lyrics, I liked her version. It was light and soothing compared to some of the power house singers. It was definitely a different rendition. I also liked how after she messed up she didn't feel the need to over sing the song. We all make mistakes right?
