Harper Gruzins is an 11-year-old who refers to herself as a "singer/songwriter." That, however, may be a classification that sent Francis Scott Key spinning in his grave after a performance of "his one-hit-wonder" this past weekend at a Major League Soccer game.
We might be inclined to give the vernal vocalist some leeway, due to nerves and other factors. (She still shows signs that she's better than other auto-tuned artists who sing about the days of the week.)
However, with this horrific performance, sporting events have once again provided the platform for the American National Anthem to be butchered like...meat...in some type of...butcher shop.
