The National Anthem is covered by artists time and time again, but even though the original song is timeless, artists sing their renditions in an attempt to make the song memorable and their own. Whitney Houston’s rendition of the Star-Spangled banner at the Super Bowl is considered one of the best performances of the song of all time.
With so many incredible artists singing this song, it is difficult to differentiate your version from the rest. However, Chloe and Halle Bailey’s version of the National Anthem at the BET Experience’s Sprite Celebrity Awards is unlike any rendition I have ever heard and it blew the entire audience away.
These teen sisters grew up in Atlanta, Georgia but eventually moved to Los Angeles with their family to pursue careers in music. Their YouTube channel is what has really launched them into the music industry, singing incredible covers that garner millions of views.
These girls have an insane amount of talent. Their voices show the utmost display of control and skill and they blend together in such a beautiful way. I am simply blown away by their clever harmonies and strategic pauses, it is no wonder they were recently signed to Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment.
You need to hear this performance for yourself to understand just how amazing it is. It starts off pretty normal, but as soon as they both started singing together, I had goosebumps.
I think this pair is making an excellent example for young girls everywhere in empowering them to do what they love and to follow those dreams. I am still in awe by how unique this performance is and I have no doubt that we will be seeing more from Chloe and Halle in the future!
