The National Anthem is a song we're all supposed to know and be able to sing, but as it happens most Americans struggle earnestly to hit the right notes and many can't remember the words. One master of the Star Spangled Banner though is Northeast Ohio's own - Rocco Scotti. For some 20 years he sang it before nearly every Indian's game and performed it on many other stages. On the next Sound of Ideas, we’ll talk with Rocco about the joys and challenges of singing the National Anthem. How does he hit his trademark high G? What does he think of some of the more non-traditional renditions? Join us for Rocco Scotti followed by a July 4th special from The Capitol Steps on SOI at 9 on 90.3.
