It doesn’t matter who sings God Bless America or our national anthem.

What does matter is how they are sung.

It is very disrespectful for any person to sing either of these songs and put rap or opera in them, or extra voice sounds and gyrations.

Both songs are to be sung with respect and low-key enthusiasm.

It is disgusting and disrespectful to slouch or talk during the Pledge of Allegiance or the national anthem.
