Need A Visa To The United States Of America? Sing This!

Now you too can sing the oh so sweet and melodious national anthem of the United States of America, well, at least the first stanza. This version was performed by Soprano superstar and Grammy award winner Renee Flemming at the Superbowl 2014. The National Anthem was  written by Francis Scott Key in 1814. Their flag has 13 horizontal stripes, 7 red alternating with 6 whites. The stripes represent the original 13 colonies. The stars represents the  50 states of the union. Red symbolizes hardness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence. Blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice . Just in case you are at the embassy and are asked on the spur or on the hot seat you can thank me by sharing your winnings. Frank Edoho take note! Hehehehehe. You may continue after the cut to see Queen Latifah in her amazing voice perform, America the beautiful. Now lets sing....
Oh say, can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's light gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
above the fruited plain
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shinning sea
