Beyonce sang an emotional and outstanding performance of 'The Star Spangled Banner' over the weekend at the Presidential Inauguration - or so you may think. New York Post's Page Six has confirmed that the singer decided at the last minute to lip-sync the National Anthem over the weekend, a rep for the United States Marine Band revealed.
The band rep, Kristin DuBois, told Page Six, “All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day." She adds, “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”

I was born and raised a Tiger fan here in Baton Rouge. I graduated from LSU in 2003 and I've been in radio ever since. The degree in Public Relations definitely paid off considering I'm also the Promotions Director for WFMF. I've been married since 2007 to my husband Drew, who's a local attorney here in Baton Rouge and we have three girls. Girls really do run the world in our house!
