Sports games in America are usually preceded by a performance of the national anthem. It’s a big honor to get to perform the patriotic tune, and many do their very best to make their singing perfect, and sometimes, even unique. Artist Joseph Everson was set to perform the national anthem at an Arkansas Razorbacks basketball game.
From the moment he arrived, the audience knew it would be something different from the norm. In front of him sat a large black canvas with some marks drawn onto it, and Everson held in his hands two paint brushes. He began to sing, drawing spectators in with his rich voice, while his hands began to furiously work at the canvas, etching on marks and splashes in turn.
It’s not clear what it is that he’s actually painting, but the crowd is entranced. Then, as the song ends, Joseph reaches over and turns the painting upside down, and the audience goes wild as the picture is clearly revealed. You’ll have to watch the video to see the amazing spectacle.
Do share it if you were impressed!
