There is patriotic and the there is PATRIOTIC.
This week, "National Anthem Girl" Janine Stange visited FOX News Channel's FOX & Friends in her first national television experience since completing her goal of singing the National Anthem in all 50 states in Tennessee on Friday, August 29.
During the chat, Stange announced her next move in continuing her support for America's troops by stating, "I want to invite artists from every genre to record a version of the National Anthem that is purely patriotic. It will be downloadable. All of the money will go to a specific account in my non-profit. Since I've gone to all 50 states, I want to identify families of those who have served and also those who are serving that have tangible needs that we can meet."
She likened that idea to a "We Are the World" for the "Star-Spangled Banner."
Stange learned some interesting things about the United States by visiting all 50 of 'em. She said, "Two things. Number one, I feel like we are all family – we are all different, we have different accents, we look different, we drive different kinds of cars. We are all family and we all really, really love all those who serve. The other thing is, really America is beautiful. I would drive and I'd be like, 'Oh my gosh – I have to stop every five feet to take another photo.' It is gorgeous."
