Singing in front of a stadium of more than 22,000 people is many people’s worst nightmare so credit to 11-year-old Harper Gruzins who did just that last night.
However, Harper’s rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at the Dallas-Los Angeles MLS match quickly turned into the audience’s worst nightmare, according to harsh reviews from Deadspin, who blasted it as ‘the worst National Anthem rendition ever.’
Describing it as ‘even worse’ than Steven Tyler’s rendition of The Star Spangled Banner in January, the site writes: ‘This nearly three minute long rendition really is so bad it must be heard to be believed
She is only 11-years-old, the site reminds us, so deserves credit for simply getting up there to sing in front of the packed stadium.
Introduced to the crowd as a ‘singer/songwriter from Coppell, Texas’ the audience reverently quieten for the U.S. National Anthem.
Lasting for almost three minutes, Harper belts out the anthem with confidence.
However, her performance has since been slammed with one unkind comment on YouTube describing it as the ‘worst rendition in history.’
