Marvin Gaye's 1983 national anthem performance

Tonight Christina Aguilera messed up a line of the national anthem at the Super Bowl. In seeing a few posts about it I was reminded of this performance for the 1983 NBA All Star Game. No other artist singing the national anthem will floor an audience with soul and surprise like Marvin Gaye did back in 1983.

and some of the back story to this performance here on NPR.
