Video: Zooey Deschanel Sings the National Anthem at Game 4 of the World Series
The New Girl actress and She & Him singer belted the National Anthem at the World Series last night. How did she do?
We already know Zooey Deschanel is one talented gal—whether cracking us up on hit new sitcom New Girl or getting her folk on with her band She & Him, this quirky star has proved that she can pretty much do it all. But here’s a question for you: Can she do the National Anthem? Well, let’s find out, because she sang it last night at Rangers Ballpark to kick off Game 4 of the World Series. What do you think, Bettys?
She sounded a little scared at the beginning (and to be fair, we can’t really blame her—she WAS singing in front of roughly 50,000 people, after all!), but she finished strong with a nice solid belt. Her style is also a nice change of pace from the usual overly-embellished pop star version of the National Anthem that we usually hear these days; Zooey even puts in mind just a little bit of classic cabaret singer and actress Lotte Lenya. Good for you, Zooey!
So who’s next to tackle the National Anthem? None other than Selena Gomez. Catch her at the start of Game 5 tonight at 8pm on Fox!
