Charice sticks to the required march up-tempo rhythm of the hymn.
I’m still having thoughts why the Americans have freedom in slightly changing the melody of their national anthem to make an emotional and heartfelt and sometimes dramatic rendition…and we don’t. Charice singing the national anthem could have been a blast if she has the freedom to make the last note marvelously high, but of course, it’s against the law.
Oh well. It’s a good rendition nonetheless.
