Well, it wasn't my favorite rendition, BUT, he didn't forget the words!!! Waaaaay better to have a trumpet player than any Lady Gaga wannabe! This link is a better one sound wise. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YHJVQ3XcYpM&feature=youtu.be&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DYHJVQ3XcYpM%26feature%3Dyoutu.be I don't care for slowed down versions of the National Anthem. It's not about the one performing and a showcase for them. Its about the men and women past and present being remembered for their service and sacrifice so we can live in a free society. It was okay but I personally sensed no passion in his playing.
