Alicia Keys is on the receiving end of backlash following her rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at last night’s Super Bowl.
Reactions from those in the music and entertainment industry were all positive but the general public was not feeling it. Many felt Keys had betrayed Francis Scott Key by adding her own spin to the song. One Yahoo! Music reader said:
“Stop trying to make the national anthem your own. It’s not yours. It’s ours collectively. Sing it the way it’s supposed to be sung.”
