Trumpeter's Rendition of Star-Spangled Banner at Carolina Panthers San Francisco 49ers Game Wows Crowd! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

The Carolina Panthers and their fans didn`t have much to cheer about as they were crushed and humiliated by the San Francisco 49ers.

The only time Panthers` fans were on their feet cheering and applauding was before the game when trumpeter Jesse McGuire played the National Anthem.


McGuire has toured with Tower of Power and Wynton Marsalis, played before three presidents, and played the National Anthem at dozens of major sporting events.

The Star-Spangled Banner with a range of one a half octaves it notoriously difficult to sing, many major pop stars from Christina Aguilera to Steven Tyler have butchered the song.

I am sick and tired of witnessing pop stars lip-synch, sing off key and forget the lyrics to our beloved National Anthem.

Jesse McGuire should be hired to play the national anthem before every Super Bowl,  and before every World Series and NBA finals game.
