OMGoodies! Marvin Gaye Singing National Anthem

I don't think I've ever heard so many people swooning while someone sang the National Anthem. Here's Marvin Gaye singing the National Anthem at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game. I'm so glad I came across this clip!

I remember seeing this when it happened. It was the first time that I had paid attention to this particular song in a long time.

It is still one of the renditions of this song.

Remember it well. Especially since that All-Star game was here, with Magic, Kareem and Jamal on the West. We may have lost to the East that day, but Marvin all-time best with that one rendition. Around here the next day, EVERYBODY was talking about MG's interpretation (with replays on TV). Thanks, Nordette.
