Though not flying atop of the charts these days, T-Pain once dominated the Urban-Pop landscape with what seemed – at the time – like an endless list of hits.
As most will recall, it was his unique use of auto-tune that served as his main selling point.
It caught many off-guard, then, when the singer was tapped to perform the US National Anthem at the LA Dodgers game last night.
Interestingly, he ditched his vocal trademark and tackled the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ with a more traditional approach.
Wonder how he did? The answer awaits below — and you may be surprised.
Granted this was by no means a Whitney or Mariah, T turned in a commendable effort.
Some of the notes were strangled and strained, but Mr Pain still gets an A for effort. It’s not as if many male artists are brave enough to try their hand at the track. And even when they do, the results more often than not are shocking. Just ask Jamie Foxx.
