Watch: Alexandra Burke Performs National Anthem At NBA Game

alexandra burke national anthem Watch: Alexandra Burke Performs National Anthem At NBA Game

Taking a brief break from recording her third studio album, Alexandra Burke performed tonight at NBA’s invasion of London town.

Unfazed by the thousands in attendance at the Pistons vs Knicks game, the X Factor graduate thrilled with a melismatic take on the UKs National Anthem ‘God Save The Queen’. Watch Ms. Burke soar after the jump…

And that, friends, is why Alexandra remains one of the most gifted vocalists the UK has produced in years! We’ve, quite literally, never heard the song performed that way. But oh did Alex nail it. Stellar.

Your thoughts?

    She is getting hate in teh UK cos they do not like confident black women out there. Black women are suppose to stay in their place.

    It’s real shame she never blew up like she was supposed to.

    She needs to go to the US and give it another try, whatever it takes. That voice deserves to be heard on the right songs.

    She sounded amazing. 1st time hearing the soulful version of the most basic of national anthems. Very impressed.

    She’s the definition of a true star!

    Hopefully her next record will focus more on her vocal abilities than the previous one.

    She MUST use her vocal gift properly on her next album.
    Powerhouse beast singer.

    Still listen to her session on The Splash.

    She gave God Save The Queen a soulful and us national kind of twist to it.
    Love it

    This is what the U.K national anthem needed! After years of hearing it sung in such a dull monotone way when our American counterparts have an anthem that is preformed in such a variety of ways and also sounds inspirational, Ms Burke slayed and may have also just made history! Hopefully the Anthem will be continued to be sung this way or at least inspire artists to be adventurous with renditions.

      I agree and i think she blows Leona out of the water vocally (my personal opinion)

    Awfull, trully awfull. Heard a thousand better voices down the pub, ridiculously uneccesary vibrato and peculiar phrasing….. stick to impressing the pop music buying public, average age 9, average I.Q. under 60
