Yesterday marked another day in history. 2 term presidential winner, Barack Obama, was sworn into office in Washington, DC. Hundreds of thousands of people, including a ton of celebrities, came out to show their support. But what has everybody talking is the performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” given by the one and only Mrs. Beyonce Knowles-Carter ( Always spell out her name! LOL)
During the performance, Beyoncé took out her ear piece, something most signers need to stay in tune with the live band. Now she has everyone questioning if that beautiful rendition of America’s number 1 song was real! A Sgt. of the Marine Corps Band, Kristin DuBois, told The Post she faked the entire performance.
All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day. We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyoncé was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why?
Dubois gave this statement to NBC news earlier today
We all know Beyoncé can sing. We all know the Marine Corps Band can play. We do not know why she decided to go with the pre-recorded music at the last-minute.
Interesting. Seems like DuBois is upset by the stars decision to lip sing the song. But nonetheless she did a wonderful job! And lip-sync or not, it’s still a HUGE honor to have that privilege to sing before the leader of the nation.
