David Archuleta - who Jive Records fired earlier this year due to the poor sales of his sophomore album - sang the US national anthem 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at the NASCAR Royal Purple 300 Race at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California last Saturday. "My first time at a NASCAR race!", tweeted an excited David before the performance. He definitely delivered! Kept it simple, no unnecessary decorations/adblibs, just solid singing. Shame though at those annoying militaty aircrafts that completely ruined the last seconds of David's performance. I assume he was hittin' them high-notes during those unhearable seconds. Organization FAIL. BTW, I wonder if David will sign with an independen label now?
R&B star Brandy opened the night session play at the Miami Sony Ericcson Tennis Open on Saturday with a perforamnce of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' - Hmmmm, I wasn't really feeling Brandy's version. She played it too safe when she has a voice to slay. Be on the look for her new album later in 2011.
