Ben Vereen Knocks National Anthem Out Of The Park At Fiesta Bowl
Iconic Broadway leading man and recognizable small screen and Hollywood notable Ben Vereen showed off his considerable performance skills once again with a tremendous live rendering of the national anthem yesterday at the Fiesta Bowl.
Vereen kicked off the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix, AZ, with an emotionally-charged and melisma-flecked singing of the tricky tune to the cheers and adulation of the thousands in attendance and more than 3 million viewers around the globe where the University of Florida squared off against Baylor at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
And, wow - what a final note!
Clearly, some showbiz greats really do age like fine wine and Mr. Vereen is unquestionably one of them judging from this spectacular live performance clip.
