Jordan Smith National Anthem NHL Winter Classic Video: Watch “Star-Spangled Banner” Performance Here!
Jordan Smith had the honor of singing the National Anthem at the NHL Winter Classic on Friday, and you better believe “The Voice” winner did the “Star-Spangled Banner” justice. Watch below!
The annual sporting event is always held on New Year’s Day, and the 2016 edition took place at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, where the Boston Bruins would take on the Montreal Canadiens. With an NHL-inspired scarf around his neck, Smith sang the National Anthem in front of thousands of people inside the venue, and millions more watching on television. The rising star was surrounded by hockey players, and fireworks went off during the performance.
The appearance comes less than a month after Smith won season 9 of “The Voice.” As Gossip Cop reported, he was the frontrunner during the entire cycle, first wowing all four coaches during his blind audition on the premiere. He chose to join Team Adam, and together they dominated the competition. In fact, by the end of the season, Smith became the first contestant in the history of the NBC series to chart in the iTunes top 10 for each week of the live rounds.
During one of those weeks, Smith even knocked Adele out of the number one spot on the iTunes Top 100 chart. Gossip Cop sees Smith getting asked to sing the National Anthem at many more high-profile events in the future. Check out the video below!
