Anthem Singer

John Buccigross goes on and on about how good the Philly anthem singer is in his columns, but I think shes terrible. Shes got a pretty good voice, but when she gets to the end of the song, she totally butchers the timing.

compared to the rest of the league, the flyers have it relatively easy when it comes to the anthems. the twit in ottawa that sings looks like a puppet with an over-large hand stuffed up his butt.

She changes the phrasing, it isn't a butchering of the timing. Regardless of what you or I think about Lauren, it isn't hard to realize that the anthem is up for interpretation by the singer, and she chooses to change the timing of the ending. She always sings it that way, and she always will, and I think she does fine.

Lauren Hart does a pretty damn good job singing the anthem. i cant recall anyone ever thinking she is horrible, then again you are a Leaf fan so i can understand the comments.

what anthem singer doesn't change the timing at the end? I have never heard the national anthem at a sporting event where the timing was perfect at the end. The anthem singers aren't robots.

She can come and sing in the ACC anytime. We typically have pretty boring singers and she is anything but boring.

YOU SIR, HAVE NO EAR FOR MUSIC!

Lauren IS the BEST singer in the NHL and probably the rest of the sporting events.

Few singers can give you chills EVERY time they sing, She does and not just to me.

Ear wax removal may help.

It's just her little twist....everybody has one. She is a wonderful singer and not real tough to look at either.

I am 110% Canadian, but when she sings the american anthem during the playoffs, i stand and get goose bumps. Lauren is awesome !

Although I will say I don't hate him as much as my brother's roommate, who is a former Whalers' fan. I think that's just a product of his hating the Bruins, though.

I dont mind the comments about the Lauren Hart. But please dont make comments when you have no idea what you are talkiing about. Lauren Hart is one of the best singers in the league. This is not just a opinion from a Flyers fan on her singing. Ask around the league and there is no doubt she would be top 3 or 4.
On top of that she is pretty damn cute.
