An incredible moment happened today in Kansas City when the mic failed during the National Anthem at the Chiefs vs Bengals playoff game in Arrowhead Stadium.
Ashanti’s microphone was not functioning properly when she was singing the National Anthem before Sunday’s AFC championship game. The Grammy Award-winning artist’s mic was cutting in and out. That’s when the audience began singing loud enough for all to hear!
As the National Anthem began, it was clear that Ashanti’s microphone was not functioning properly, cutting in and out as she progressed through the anthem.
The microphone issues led to an unexpected beautiful moment, as the Chiefs faithful began belting out the National Anthem, assisting Ashanti as her microphone faltered.
Don’t think I’ve ever heard a stadium crowd sing a long to the national anthem this loudly before pic.twitter.com/42SNXVPp9N

Arrowhead having mic issues with Ashanti and making up for it with the entire crowd belting the national anthem is pretty cool
