Ever since I saw the School of Rock, I knew Jack Black could sing. But who knew he could belt the National Anthem in such a legendary way?
Serenading a crowd in Los Angeles before a Sparks game, the Tenacious D singer does an understated performance of the “Star Spangled Banner”. Without pulling any vocal tricks or trying too hard, Black pulls it off.
Too bad the audience isn’t as respectful.
As one YouTuber remarked,”Audience, shut the heck up until the end. You’re being disrespectful and also it is f*cking Jack Black singing.”
“It’s Wednesday, Wednesday, gotta get down on Wednesay…” Nope, it just doesn’t work the same way. Oh well!
Rebecca Black has done the unthinkable – according to Gossip Cop, Black’s awesome*cough* music video for “Friday,” has officially become the most disliked video on YouTube in the site’s history, surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Baby” music video’s 1.16 million “dislikes”, with 1.17 million. Congrats, Rebecca, you officially have more haters than Justin Bieber! Now that’s an accomplishment.
However, Bieber still beats black in the fan department, with his 500 million views trumping Black’s mere 64 million.
Apparently, though, none of this is stopping Black from getting a recording contract of her own. Perez Hilton reported that while on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this past Thursday, Ms. Black expressed how “overwhelmed by the sudden burst of attention” her and her daughter are, so Seacrest hooked the singer up with Debra Baum, a manager from DB Entertainment.
Just because she’s signed doesn’t mean that she will be able to sing any better…although I will give the girl credit, her two-second rendition of the American national anthem on Good Morning America was not terrible! She might not be Christina Aguilera, but it didn’t make my ears bleed. That’s a start, right?
Check out Black singing the national anthem here, and be sure to head over to her “Friday” music video on YouTube and “dislike” or “like” it! And remember people, yesterday was Tuesday, today is Wednesday, tomorrow is Thursday, and the day after that is FRIDAY! Just in case you forgot.
