Before Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game, Ciara took the field at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. The R&B diva performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a packed stadium. While the players looked on, she belted out an acapella rendition of the patriotic tune, accompanied by three backup singers.
She received mixed reviews on social media, but seemed pleased with her performance.

Congrats to Ciara for butchering the National Anthem at the All-Star Game. Haha worst one I've ever heard.

Ciara and her new flame Russell Wilson will attend the ESPYS in L.A. on Wednesday and Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards on Thursday, hosted by Wilson.
The video for her new single “Dance Like We’re Making Love” is set to premiere Thursday on the Jumbotron in New York’s Times Square. “This is my best video to date,” she recently said.
