Reason #101: The National Anthem
Over the years a cappella groups have found all sorts of venues in which to sing, ways in which to get their names out to the public, serve the local community. One of the truest staples, though has been singing the National Anthem. Whether it’s a matter of singing the anthem before a college sports game, or an NBA or MLB game, or any other number of settings, singing The National Anthem provides groups a unique opportunity to access an audience a new audience. Better yet, a cappella groups are often able to sing it with better tuning and precision than other acts. As such, each time an a cappella group sings the National Anthem, they’re not only helping themselves, but bettering the name of the a cappella genre.
