Jordan Smith Sings US National Anthem At Winter Classic
Holly Reyes 1/18/2016
Jordan Smith's opening of the NHL Winter Classic was unforgettable. He sang the National Anthem, and the crowd went wild. It was a humbling moment being in front of such a large stadium full of listening ears, yet Jordan did exactly what he does best and put on an incredible performance for all the Winter Classic fans.
All bundled up and ready to sing, he waited patiently as he was announced for the honor of singing in front of 71,000 people. Finally, he grasped the microphone tightly and began singing the heartwarming National Athem in all its beauty. His voice rang throughout the large stadium, and a ginormous American flag was held proudly next to the Canadian flag before the games would begin.
Jordan stuck with a more classic rendition of the National Anthem, but wasn't afraid to release those high notes towards the end. But of course, the whole stadium was waiting for it knowing he had it within himself to do so. Being a recent winner of The Voice, he's in the habit of pushing himself beyond limits, raising the bar even higher than ever before. So by the time he reached the ending, it was just natural.
