Johnny Hammond – The National Anthem Houston Astros 08/31/14 – YouTubePosted on
We see many videos and photos of Barbershoppers singing the National Anthem at sporting events. (Past International President Burt Huish and NED Barbershopper Al St. Louis are notable for sheer number of performances.)
We all aspire, however, to the strength and vigor of long-time Houston Barbershopper Johnny Hammond, who at the tender age of
98 corrected: 90 gave a wonderful performance before a Houston Astros game August 31, 2014.
Updated: many readers reminded us that Johnny is equally famous in barbershop circles as lead of Bayou City Music Committee, 1989 International Seniors Quartet Champion.
Don’t take our word for it – watch the video. The man brings it.
