Good singers know good singing. Or, do they?
Award-winning gospel singer Kierra Sheard said vocalist Jamie Foxx’s much-trashed rendition of “The
Star Spangled Banner” was “good.”
Beyond Sheard, however, the Oscar winner’s performance before the Floyd Mayweather and Manny
Pacquiao fight Saturday in Las Vegas, didn’t receive much support.
“I enjoyed Jamie foxx!!!” wrote the 27-year-old on Twitter, then added, “Where I am there are super
haters around sheesh!”
While Foxx is known as both a gifted singer and pianist, when he placed his unique twist on The National
Anthem, Twitter erupted with criticism from fans.
Foxx, who removed his earpiece at the start of the song, made the melody feel R&B-ish and soulful—
something plenty listeners didn’t appreciate.
