Well this was quite something. The legendary Aretha Franklin sang the American national anthem yesterday to kickoff Thanksgiving Thursday football. And it was quite something. Keep in mind that the song itself is about a minute and a half. Sometimes stars who sing it before an event make it a little longer; 2 minutes, 2 and a half, Whitney Houston went 3 and a half… but the ‘Queen’ blew them all away coming in at just over 4 and a half minutes!
Even the halftime show had a little fun with it by listing Aretha Franklin’s ‘time of possession’ along with The Lions and Vikings. Pretty funny.
Lol they put Aretha Franklin on the time of possession graphic for her long national anthem. pic.twitter.com/cwPUFmclFE
