WASHINGTON — If this doesn’t send shivers down your spine, not much else will.
Video of a woman singing an incredible rendition of the national anthem at the Lincoln Memorial in an apparent impromptu performance has been viewed more than a million times.
The video that went viral was posted Friday to Facebook by Nay Nichelle. The footage was uploaded before that to the singer’s YouTube page on June 16.
It begins with a man encouraging the woman — identified as Star Genleah Swain — to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in the monument.
After initial apprehension, she agrees to sing. Slowly, people can be seen in the background gathering to watch.
By the time she finishes, you can hear the crowd react.
“Omg! Look at how everyone stopped what they were doing to listen to this young lady sing the National Anthem at the Lincoln Memorial! AMAZING!” Nichelle wrote.
