Keri Hilson gets a second chance at National Anthem

A few weeks back, R&B starlet Keri Hilson was granted the opportunity to perform the National Anthem at the Atlanta Hawks vs.Los Angeles Lakers basketball game, at the Staples Center in LA, AOL Black Voices mediates.

The “Turnin’ Me On” singer was blasted by bloggers for her horrible rendition of the patriotic standard.

The 27 year-old Decatur, Georgia-born beauty admitted to doing a bad job. “I bloopered first time, but of course I know the words to the anthem,” she wrote. Hilson blamed the poor performance on “my in-ear pack goin’ in and out” and adds that the distraction resulted in her almost singing the first verse over.

The Grammy Award-nominated singer and songwriter sang the National Anthem again at the Boston Red Sox & New York Yankees baseball season opener game on April 4 and didn’t make one mistake. “It went great. Thank you, Lord,” she said.

“Besides nailing the Anthem, the best part of my night was walking back and people of all ages waved, yelled and clapped forever,” Hilson wrote on her Twitter page. “Can’t buy a better moment.”
