“I sung the national anthem. Now some people were a little upset about how it went down. But here’s the thing first of all, anytime a black person sings the national anthem you know we gotta. ‘Oh sayyyyyyy can youuououou.’ I mean that’s just ya know. But what did happen in the ring my ears came out. My inner ears,” Jamie shared.

He added, “Listen, Jamie Foxx ears came out. No, my inner ears came out and I’m singing with an organ so I can’t hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd. So some of it was a little off, but in the arena it killed. The telecast was a little off. But ya know we still love America!” Watch the video below!
