Kim Toshioki : Don't know how many times I've replayed this. Can't stop listening to this. So beautiful

Michael Gunter : I love this rendition but as a Veteran born in Hawaii I do not like the disrespect shown by the spectators .

John Keogh : Willie K is a gift to Hawaii, and this world. This rendition raised the hairs on my arms.

MichaelMcDermott123 : Took one of the most tired songs ever sung and turned into a perfect thing of beauty

David Carroll : Pure Truth... pure Creativity... ALOHA... That is what America IS! And this great , loving Hawaiian man GETS IT! Like Jimi Hendrix' version at Woodstock in '69! That was beautiful! Mahalo Willie.

sempretallysmom : Thanks for posting this. I read about it in the news. Very touching tribute. Sometimes you need to shake things up a little bit so that people truly understand what the song means and appreciate what the song is about.

Bucc42 : Can someone show this to Fergie? Not over the top it and it didn't take an extra 30 minutes to bring it home.

Future of Senior Fitness : the best rendition I have ever heard! Mahalo Willie K!!!!

J_Jammer : He hit all the right notes despite it being different. Well done.

Hilary Hoffman : I’m a purist about our National Anthem. HOWEVER, this has to be one of the most beautiful interpretations I have ever heard! Goosebumps first, then a downpour of tears! Bravo, Willie K!

Meggon McCall : Beautiful!

JOK : Aloha Willie K. Beautiful rendition.

Gerry Smith : This is really a great rendition. Everyone of all color & race standing with respect. Now this is what the USA is all about. Now of course Felarca, Shanta Driver and the other Communists with ANTIFA, BAMN and the CPUSA will claim it's racist, demeaning to moniorities and everyone standing in the stadium were just tools of the "white conspiracy". According to ANTIFA the song should have been "The Internationale" which is an old Communist song from the 1930s telling how all citizens willingly give up any freedom since "the STATE" knows what is best and citizens only exist for the STATE.

Matthew Wolfe : The best performance of the US National Anthem by a 👍 Hawaiian named Willie K who made his 1st public appearance since fighting cancer.
