It didn’t take long for the crowds to hush and gather around to hear G. Star Swain sing The Star Spangled Banner and take in the patriotism of the moment — her voice echoing in the chamber’s perfect acoustics.
Thankfully, her family was there to encourage her to overcome her fear and “watch God do it,” as the cameraman said. The video was broadcast live to Facebook.
The moment she opened her mouth, chills ran through everyone’s body, including mine. To have been there in person must have been an unbelievable experience.
Before the singer could finish, the applause had already started. People young and old came up to her, hugging her and complimenting her voice. Even the security guards were impressed and shook her hand.
Watch the moving performance below and God bless America:
