Americans found “their Edyta Górniak”. This rendition of the anthem is a hit on the Internet

At the end of February, a meeting was held in Indiana as part of the NBA games Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors. The visitors from Canada won the match, but the greatest heroine of the entire match was the 8-year-old girl KinsleyMurray.

The young singer was given the opportunity to perform the Canadian national anthem.About Canada” and the United States “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the meeting and she managed to do it in such a way that she became instantly recognizable.

“Passion, outfit. This performance of the anthem is inimitable,” we read on the team’s official TikTok account Indiana Pacers.

The video they shared on the website has been viewed over 21 million times. The 8-year-old was the embodiment of America, she wore a dress with American colors, American flag earrings, pearls, and stars from the American flag in her hair.

In the comments, some people – despite everything – praised her performance, claiming that she had achieved “toppers”, but there were also ironic comments. Murray was mainly compared to Fergie and her famous 2018 NBA All-Star Game appearance, when she completely dropped the anthem.

Polish comments also appeared on social media, comparing her performance to the one she gave in South Korea Edyta Górniak in 2002. Its execution “Mazurka Dąbrowskiego” she is still reproached for it.

Those who think that it was Murray’s first time performing in front of such a large audience are mistaken. The girl is regularly invited to perform the US national anthem and she does it in a very similar way and almost always in the same style.

She first became famous in 2021, when she appeared before a match of the college basketball team Gonzaga Bulldogs. Then she was invited to perform a few more times during NBA games. After her first appearance, Murray even appeared on television, enjoying her adventure. “I enjoyed the uproar when I finished. It makes me sing better and better,” she commented at the time.
