Jim Cornelison, the full time national anthem singer for the Chicago Blackhawks, has performed the Star Spangled Banner at numerous venues in addition to the United Center. Cornelison has performed the Star Spangled banner before NFL and college football games; as well as NASCAR races.
Last night, on the eve of the Star Spangled banner’s 200th birthday, he flexed his vocal muscles on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert closed his show last night by interviewing his guest, Lonn Taylor, author of “The Star Spangled banner: the making of an American Icon,” then introducing Cornelison.
