Beyonce Press Conference Starts with the National Anthem

The big news of Thursday afternoon's press conference sessions was Beyonce singing the National Anthem at the outset of her press conference. David Fucillo of Niners Nation had his camera rolling.

During President Barack Obama's Inauguration Ceremony, Beyonce was scheduled to sing the National Anthem. However, she did a little less singing than was anticipated. In fact, she didn't really sing at all, choosing to lip-sync the Star Spangled Banner.

With the former Destiny's Child member scheduled to be the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl, today was Beyonce's pre-Super Bowl press conference. Knowing that she was going to be grilled about the Inauguration, the nine time Platinum album singer started off the press conference by asking everyone to stand and singing an a cappella rendition of the National Anthem.

David Fucillo from Niners Nation was at the presser, and had his camera rolling for the bazaar start to the event.
