At 4:00 Wednesday, Hickenlooper made his final statement on what he called a surprise move by someone he trusted, saying, "We had no idea this was going to happen. This is not something the City of Denver would ever sanction or condone."
Hickenlooper said, "We didn't pay her, so I mean, there was no contract. We asked her to come sing the national anthem and we expected her to come sing the national anthem and we were disappointed and frustrated that that did not happen."
I had never heard of the "Black National Anthem".

The original tune for "Lift Every Voice and Sing" is beautiful, but she crammed the lyrics into the tune to the "Star Spangled Banner".

Just more of the ol double standard. If this was a similar stunt pulled by a white person, how silent would the media be?
