You probably put up with singing like this in your church too. :-)

This is SNL’s Maya Rudolph’s brilliant impression of countless indulgent, over-emotive R&B singers butchering the National Anthem. I find this so incredibly hilarious because it taps into one of my biggest pet peeves about modern musical performances. And it’s just stinking funny. I’d put it on my all-time top ten SNL sketches.

Watch it before NBC yanks it off YouTube.

    Oh, you may want to know that Maya Rudolph is the daughter of the late, great soul singer Minnie Riperton who sang, among other things, the hit “Lovin’ You” with that glass-piercing high note in the chorus.

    fortunately, we don’t have anyone in our church with that much soul. ;-)

    Yup, stinkin’ funny is right.
