In order to celebrate Independence Day in grand style, I have packed a one-two punch in “Star Spangled Banner” video performances here on this blogging site.
Below this topic, you will see and hear a gorgeous rendition of both the Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America by the immensely talented David Archuleta.
And, in this topic, you will be treated to a glorious rendition of The Star Spangled Banner as performed by Forte member, Fernando Varela. It is an extremely unique and challenging version – full of endless twists and surprises.
Not only was Fernando blessed with a prodigious vocal gift, but also the wisdom to understand that his God-given talent needed superlative care and guidance.
To this end, through hard work, perseverance, determination and vision, Fernando has been able to excite and energize a crowd in a magical way and touch them in a manner never experienced before.
As you listen to this recording, you will be in absolute awe at what he has achieved here. It is a passionate, inspiring and memorable recording that is unique to Fernando.
And, as you listen, you will ask the question: “Where has this guy has been hiding all these years”?
One answer: in plain sight.
