I'm from JAMAICA Right.. I KNOW THE JAMAICAN NATIONAL ANTHEM.. we used to sing it everyday before class when I was at Wolmers Prep... I got asked by Dime Magazine and Nike to sing the anthem for this tournament at goat park in NY hosted by Bobbito...
I was asked specifically to do the Marvin Gaye Rendition of the Anthem ...
The Star Spangled Banner Composed by Francis Scott Key, "In Defense of Fort McHenry", September 20, 1814. Congress proclaimed it the U.S. National Anthem in 1931. Midi by Lesley Nelson
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there. O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
