A Hawai'ian singer reinvented the national anthem and it's beautiful

The Star-Spangled Banner has stayed the same, with the same words and the same tune for 87 years, but a Hawai’ian musician reinvented the song while performing the song at a football game in Hawai’i and left quite an impression. 

The singer, who goes by Willie K., reinterpreted the national anthem by accompanying himself on the ukulele and singing the tune in an original melody of his own creation.
