Good thing no one who MEANS anything to the SF Bay Area sang the anthem. That would be silly

Just awful!

Susan, that was an excellent National Anthem! You are one of my favorite blues artists. It was great to hear you sing it. Thank you!

I can’t sing and I could have done a better job. I hope she wasn’t paid.

That was gutsy and great to finally hear someone willing to belt it out

We thought the job you did on the anthem was superb. Well done.

GREAT JOB, SUSAN! Don’t listen to the haters…. you should be proud. They’re out washed up Bay area artists anyway (at least anyone that can carry a tune).

“our song” thank you for a truly American contribution.

We just saw you singing your heart out on the east coast! You are so talented!

Susan Tedeschi October 23, 2012, 17:31:59

I sang free! In order to belt it out i had to open my mouth wider an therefore it sounded like an A. I could
Have pronouncedvit better and sang in my falsetto
But it would have been quiter. You try it!

To the above mentioned haters . Do you have a grammy with your name on it ? Did your phone ring with the call for this gig ? It takes amazing skill , talent and guts to preform anywhere. keep your negative comments to yourselves. Thank you Susan for your inspiring voice and hard work with the TTB band. Oh yeah , Mike Mattison is good to. xoxo.

That was a great rendition of our anthem. So good that’s why I’m here I had to find out who sang, as I missed the introduction.

I was sitting at an airport when I was listening to this on my radio headset. But, I thought when she sang, “and the land of the free,” the word was not free. I thought maybe she messed up, but nothing has been said about it. I wish I could confirm that.

Susan Tedeschi October 23, 2012, 17:35:51

I sang free! In order to belt it out I had to open my mouth wider and therefore it sounded like an A. I could
have pronounced it better and sang in my falsetto voice,
But it would have been quieter and not so powerful.
I will work on it!! Not easy to do on live television
Infront of 45,000 live fans and 25 million at home.
Glad people are paying attention none the less.

Tom October 23, 2012, 20:35:20

One of the best reditions ever.
I remember Jose Feliceano’s (sp) at Tiger Stadium. 1968
It was not taken well by alot of people, but it is a classic!!

Tom R October 24, 2012, 12:08:15

Susan…It was awesome….sent chills up my body
