From The Vault: Mariah Carey Belts US National Anthem At Super Bowl 2002

Published: Sunday 2nd Feb 2020 by Joe

With just a few hours to before the Super Bowl 2020, That Grape Juice’s From The Vault journeys back to the year 2002. A year which gifted the world’s Mariah Carey‘s soaring rendition of the US National Anthem at the Big Game.

Taking place only a few months after 9/11, Carey’s performance of the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ served as a tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack and very much functioned as a beacon of a patriotism during trying times.

For this reason, as well as its technical astuteness, it was met with universal acclaim from the public and critics alike. The legend scored a supersonic touchdown.

It also kickstarted the reintroduction of Mimi to the masses, after her much publicized breakdown months prior.

As Demi Lovato gets set to step up as the latest songbird to take vocal flight with the US National Anthem, we sincerely wish her the best. Because with the likes of Mariah and Whitney setting the standard, she’s tasked with etching her name and voice alongside some of the best to ever rock a mic.

Let the games begin!

    This performance went with the tone of post 9/11. Mariah did the anthem great justice with this performance.
