This past January, Jim Cornelison sang the national anthem at Soldier Field before the Chicago Bears’ NFC Divisional Round and NFC Championship playoff games. Cornelison gained a ton of fans for his amazing, powerful ability to sing the anthem. Chicago Blackhawks fans have known how awesome he is at singing the anthem for years, as he sings before all of their home games at the United Center. But, singing the anthem before the highly viewed Bears playoff games on Fox really got him the recognition he’s long deserved.
Well today, on the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Bears had Cornelison sing the anthem before their home opener against the Atlanta Falcons. It was an unbelievable scene, with the players from both teams coming out to help hold a massive American flag on the field while Cornelison sang. And Cornelison absolutely brought his A-game for this highly emotional moment.
Here’s the must-watch video which is sure to give you goosebumps:
