Evancho, Jackie - The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream

'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out of their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Bles't with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

  6. Rehoboth

    What the anthem sounds like when not broadcast by the fascists over at CNN.

  7. Drayson Roberts

    I really like how she puts a lot of heart into the songs she sings, and her singing the National Anthem makes you feel what the song intended you to feel. Her gentle heartfelt rendition is beautiful.

  8. Rehoboth

  12. Rehoboth

    Look what happens when CNN isn't running the sound system or trying to use our anthem as political smear.

  13. James Bouschor

    If this doesn't cause goosebumps and tears nothing will. The best you will ever, ever hear!

  14. Fernando Tadeo Perez Capistran

    Thanks to the NFL, i know who is Jackie Evancho. She should sing at the superbowl, ravens vs steelers or México vs USA soccer game. She deserve a big spot in the most important events

  15. Voltaire Lerias

    Jackie Evancho.... you are all American !.... as a Vietnam Veteran, I am very proud of you ! : )

  16. soaringtractor

    This young lady SINGS the National Anthem..............does NOT just YELL it..... like so many others !!! Beautiful !!!!!!!!!

  17. mochiikari_餅光

    She was my idol when I was 8.

  18. once*とびっこ


  19. Robert Evers

    What do people expect she is the best singer today. Very underrated.

  20. Wen Yi Zhang

    Lol I hate all Pittsburgh teams, but she has like the most beautiful voice in the world. Probably the best anthem rendition I've ever heard...I'm speechless 👏👏👏


    Ok here for all of America then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bi7ncIp9M8

  21. 松村訓明

    ジャッキーエヴァンコさん 本当に素晴らしい声です。これからのますますのご活躍を心からお祈りいたします。ありがとうございます。

  22. Susmita M. Maiti

    Wow! Jackie!😊👍

  23. Chill One

    When you don’t season the chicken


    You get to savor the perfect voice without any augmentation.

  24. Randy Fardiansyah

    That's much better than Trump's inauguration

    John Faulstich

    agreed, no sitting outside in cold and damp for 2 hours, and better audio than how inauguration was broadcast


    Because the amoral political punks at CNN weren't running the audio this day, get it?


    @John Faulstich CNN killed the gain on her mic in the sound truck to get at Trump. She sounded great in the plaza.

  25. Fabio Tito Montefinale

    Excelente Jackie <3 <3 <3 :)

  26. RandomGreninja

    I'd kill to be able to sing half as well as she does.

  27. Prof. Adriano dos Santos

    Nesta linda voz eu choro. Tantas pessoas que lutaram pela liberdade dos EUA e do mundo são abençoadas por sua linda voz de anjo. Os americanos tem a liberdade no coração e gostaria que meu povo também a tenha.

  28. Kopp203

    That octave jump on "free", straight smack into the middle of the note with no transition. Absolutely superb.

    R D

    The one at the inauguration was just as good if not better. If you play both versions simultaneously on different windows it shows how well she really did.

  29. Melanie Nguyen

    Her voice is so clear and beautiful. She feels so much more confident than at the inauguration

    R D

    Amazing how good she is without 6 weeks of boycott threats & constant harassment, plus a proper mic set up for singers and a chance to warm up.


    CNN tanked her audio to get at Trump and this video is proof. I was standing 300 ft away in the plaza and it sounded fine, nothing like the CNN National feed.

  30. peterpaints

    What a beautiful rendition with that pure voice. So, why was she so bad for Trump ? A cold ?

    R D

    The audio feed from the networks was poor. There are better feeds on Youtube of what the audience there actually heard. This channel you are on has one. She started out admittedly nervous, with no warm up. Once she got past the word "gallantly" she settled down, her voice warmed up, smoothed out and she finished as good as she normally does. Compare her octave jump on the word free for these NFL versions to the inauguration one and you'll hear that it was one of her best finishes ever.


    Cause this is what she sounds like when CNN isn't running the audio gear, get the picture.

    Richard Olsen

    If you listened to it at the event, or on the Australian network, the only one that did not electronically distort her performance, she did just fine. It's too bad that the American political scene, regardless of the party in power, has no decency or honesty remaining. Nothing now remains of what this country was meant to be.

  31. 786sami786

    Incredible. Just found you from the inauguration. I'm in awe.

  32. Alyssa Pants

    As a YUGE trump supporter. all I see here is a representation of the fact that no matter our differences, we can all stand united under the flag of a free contry and be whoever we dream to be.

    Robert Evers

    Jackie Evancho is the best. But Trump is a racist narcissistic bigot pathological liar. And you are delusional.


    And your a rub for political rhetoric and campaign smear.

  33. Robert Harris

    Jackie, did Mr. Trump send Juliet an invitation to the inauguration?


    Yes as a matter of fact he did. Juliet however was in the hospital at the time undergoing SRS surgery. President Trump is pro LBGTQ rights and any narrative to the contrary is false.

  34. Robert Harris

    I understand that Andrea Bocelli has also refused to sing for our new "president". Are you going to do the whole show by yourself, Jackie? Here is a list of some of the performers who have the integrity to refuse to perform for this scumbag. https://www.yahoo.com/celebrity/artists-won-t-perform-donald-215252018.html

    This man is a criminal, a bigot, a sexual abuser and it is becoming increasingly obvious that he is also a traitor to his country. It is NOT an act of patriotism to sing for Donald Trump.

    Robert Harris

    LOL!! You mean 98% of all the top performers are scumbags:-)


    President Trump said that no one was invited to sing. Only Jackie.

  35. M P

    Amazing voice.. luar biasa! love from Indonesia to you..

  36. Gumboot Zone

    I'm a New Zealander in Canada. But she makes me feel American.


    Lol...well here you go then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bi7ncIp9M8

  37. Brandon Black

    a True American Patriot just like PRESIDENT TRUMP see you 20 Jan, Inauguration Day!

    Matthew LeCrioux

    Robert Evers

    Brandon Black Trump is a Traitor Delusional


    You can't be serious?

  38. Fabio P

    wow amazing!!!

  39. Decker

    She's the next mega superstar (if she isn't already). American royalty with pure class and strong patriotism! It's gonna be GREAT!

    Ed F

  44. City

  45. David V

    Amazing Talent...!


    very talented!!

  51. Logan White

    Beautiful job !!!! And go Navy !!

  52. Kougeru

    love this but I'm sad to hear you're gonna sing for Trump. Hard to believe you'd support such an ignorant bigot. especially one whose Vice President hated gays and transgenders

    Dan L.

    Here you go baby: http://www.towleroad.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/lgbt_trump.jpeg
    Don't believe everything you hear. They want you to think badly about Trump because they wanted the presidency for themselves. Always search for the truth by yourself. Be free. Always.

    Jimmy P.

    Kougeru They don't HATE transgender and gays. They just think they need help instead of being enabled. And I agree.

    Matthew LeCrioux

    Nobody needs your pity, fuck off

    Jimmy P.

    @Joe V Joe, which comment or are you responding to?

    Matthew LeCrioux

    The original

  53. varnk

    Nobody sings the National Anthem as pristine and purely as Jackie Evancho!

    Irvin Nguyen

    varnk I second that

  54. rose astill

    loved it!

  55. Silas Longshot

    Jackie makes that look easy, when in fact that's one of the most challenging a capella songs around. Looking forward to inauguration day, historic in all kinds of ways.

  56. Tony Staeger

    Jackie, you sing the National Anthem so beautifully, and have for so many years! I love it. You should make sure to sing it every opportunity you can. I'm sure you'll be singing it quite a bit for many years to come, and I look forward to hearing all of them.

  57. Clix Pix

    Beautifully sung, with genuine patriotism and respect for our National Anthem and for our country...... Jackie is truly the perfect choice for this song on Inauguration Day and also -- one day in the future -- the Super Bowl!

  58. IGIGI

    Jackie will sing the national anthem for TRUMP on January 20 2017. :)

    Laurence Oliveri

    Singing for a TRUE American Patriot!!!! #AmericaStandsWithJackie #BoycottLiberalBullies #LoveNotHate #JackieEvanchoForever #AlwaysAJackieFan #SayNoToBullying #GodBlessJackieForever #AmericasSweetheart

  59. DJ Regnier

    Francis Scott Key is smiling! She recites his poem with grace and honor.

  60. tosius2

    Nobody, but nobody, sings the National Anthem like Jacqueline Marie Evancho. When this Godsend lets loose with her Divine pipes at the inauguration, the millions in attendance will respond with a roar that will "Rock the Capitol". Angelic voice breathtakingly beautiful.

  61. Tamás Kovács

    Awesome performance, I love it. I'm not American but I got goose bumps. Very beautiful...

  62. hunterofpike

    Bravo Jackie, Bravo!!! There is nothing more beautiful than listening to Angels sing.

  63. Len Rausch

    Jackie, it was an honor and a privilege to be present to hear your beautiful offering of our National Anthem, that day. No one performs it more beautifully than you, and I know that you will make every American proud, and bring tears to our eyes, when you perform it for our Nation's inaugural ceremony in January! God bless you, Jackie, for being such a wonderful role model, for both the young and the old, alike. 🎤 🎶 👏 🇺🇸

  64. vi vi

    what a beautiful voice...

    i wanna hear all day

  65. Old Farm Show

    Thank you for the video

  66. MrJackbuckeye

    No one does it better, and the right way, than you do Jackie! So glad you will be honoring our country once again with your heart and voice on Jan. 20th Inauguration Day! Always hold your head high! You're a wonderful role model for ALL Americans! God bless you!

  67. Chuck Hughes

    That has got to be the best rendition I have ever heard!


    She kept it simple and made it about the anthem and not about showcasing a thousand annoying vocal tricks like most singers do.

    Chuck Hughes

    satinbarbi Her voice is simply amazing!
