When’s the last time you heard a soulful rendition to the Star Spangled Banner? Probably when Marvin Gaye did it in the ’80s.
Well more than three decades later, Jamie Foxx attempted to channel his inner Marvin Gaye and hit us with a soulful remix to the national anthem at the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight. With a gospel organ starting him off, the 47-year-old R&B crooner took us to church as he sang through the anthem before hitting more runs than a pair of ripped stockings at the end.
And even though he was in Sin City, Jamie couldn’t fight off the spirit as he topped off his performance with a “hallelujah.”
