There’s a major controversy right now about whether or not Beyonce actually sung the national anthem live at Obama’s inauguration this past Monday. The news was confirmed by Master Sergeant Kristin DuBois, who reportedly stated the Marine Band was notified that Queen B would be using a pre-recorded track. However, spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf quickly backpedaled by stating that no one in the Marine Band is “in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded” when referencing Beyonce’s alleged lip syncing.
This news came as a shock, especially since Beyonce is known for her amazing live performances. Many fans and patriots were outraged and took to Twitter to relay their disappointment. However, it still has yet to be confirmed that Beyonce used a pre-recorded track. We were impressed by her powerful rendition of the National Anthem, which was well done regardless of it being live or pre-recorded.
