Andra Day’s Version of the Black National Anthem Gets Mixed Responses from Black America

The Internet and Black Celebs have different reviews of The Grammy winner’s Super Bowl performance

Let’s start out by acknowledging that we all love Andra Day. That said, we can acknowledge that her rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at the beginning of Super Bowl LVIII left many…hoping for better.

The Grammy-winning artist opened the big game with her rendition of the Black National Anthem, following country legend Reba McEntire’s performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Day’s alto was dependable as always, but much of the criticism of her performance focused on the arrangement of the music, which took listeners on a journey they aren’t used to from the Black National Anthem.
