"The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States. The lyrics come from "Defence of Fort McHenry", a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812.
Fifth Harmony sang the national anthem at Phoenix International Raceway before the ServiceMaster 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series Race on November 9, 2013
Oh, say can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the
Twilight's last gleaming
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched were so
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night that our flag
Lauren, Camila, Dinah & Ally
Was still there.
Lauren, Dinah & Normani
Say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
