Retired Navy Petty Officer Generald Wilson performed the national anthem before the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City, and wow.
Gerald Wilson has the voice of an Angel. I am honored to be acquainted with this true gentleman. He sings the National Anthem at the Missouri Valley Men's Basketball Tournament each year. I have enjoyed many conversations with him. A must listen. pic.twitter.com/aWuaGWCzV8

The one thing I always look for during National Anthem performances is if the performer goes up during the “was still there” part, rather than going down.
When it’s done right, like in the performance before the Chiefs/Titans game, it’s hella powerful pic.twitter.com/LT6k5kKRB3

The performance elicited a standing Twitter ovation.
Now that’s an Anthem.

Generald Wilson gives me goosebumps everytime he sings the National Anthem. He sings it the way it was written. Best of health Mr. Wilson. pic.twitter.com/ExNipu4tnI
