Sandy Hook elementary school chorus to sing national anthem at Super Bowl

EEWWWWWWWWW

But for real, am I wrong to not be excited about this? Seriously, a ****ing elementary school choir singing the superbowl national anthem, where the likes of the greatest vocalists of all time should be? I care about Sandy Hook, but not enough to let some untrained little kid class butcher the national anthem. The national anthem is part of the show. People dont really want to see that... they will be disappointed to not be able to see a Celine Dion or Whitney Houston doing it.

And besides, why are we giving the incident further spotlight anyway? Isn't that part of the problem? Dramatized media acknowledgement?

Why do you care?

No one gives a **** who sings it. THey're there to watch a game

Also, I don't think it's wrong to give victims spotlight. When it's all focused on the shooter that's when it's bad imo

I'd say it's hard for them to do worse than the professionals they've brought in.

Do they even have enough students left to make up a choir?

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

You've got to be pretty shallow to care so much about this.
