Meat Loaf Showed the World How the National Anthem Should Be Sung

Grammy award-winning singer Meat Loaf took the field in 1994 to remind the world how beautiful our national anthem really is.

For all the disrespect the American flag and the national anthem get these days from the left, it’s worth remembering when someone gets it right. Which is exactly what Grammy award-winning singer Meat Loaf did in 1994.

Meat Loaf Performs At The MLB All Star Game
On a gorgeous sunny day in 1994, Meat Loaf was invited to sing the national anthem at the 65th annual MLB All Star Game in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Before the game started, the audience was treated to one of the most beautiful renditions of the “Star Spangled Banner” ever performed.

It’s important to remember that this performance came at a time when Americans collectively loved and revered our anthem. Oh the good ol’ days!

This happened the year after the singer had his big comeback hit, 1993’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).”

Before that, he had experienced most of his success in the late 1970s, in particular, his top-selling “Bat Out of Hell” album that featured the hit “Paradise By the Dashboard Light.”

Meat Loaf’s National Anthem performance was accompanied that day by the 1994-1995 Penn State ROTC Color Guard.

While diehard sports fans might remember the details of the game that day nearly 25 years ago, most of the fans in attendance and watching at home came away remembering the breathtaking performance by Meat Loaf.

As his voice pierced the entire arena that day, many were overcome with emotion. Some broke into tears. Others were left speechless. It was truly a sight to behold.

You can watch Meat Loaf give one of the most moving and memorable anthem performances to date in the video below.

There are not a lot of singers in his league, and to hear someone with such talent treat the national anthem with the proper tribute and respect it deserves should touch the hearts of every American.

Thank you, Meat Loaf, for your great performance and this wonderful memory.
