Little Girl's Performance Of The National Anthem Is Spooky

There's a reason why horror movies choose to have little kids singing slowly in their soundtracks.

It's creepy AF.

Seriously, pair up a nursery rhyme with a kid's choir, slow it down to half speed and slap it over black and white footage of a swing or merry-go-round moving by itself, and you've got at least a PG-13 rating.

Harper, a 3-year-old with a talent for memorizing lyrics, is a delightful combination of both cute and creepy with her slow rendition of the national anthem.

And the bombs bursting in air... gave proof through the night that our end is near...

Harper's grandma taught the young singer the lyrics of the song on her third birthday, and she was allowed to sing it at Georgia's Senoia Raceway.

It's adorable enough to make yourself ask why more children aren't permitted at the track all of the time.

I don't think I've ever heard a creepier rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner."

Actually, while we're on the topic here... Why do we sing the national anthem before sporting events and races?

This is, aside from every morning on the loud speaker in public school, the only time that anthem is ever sung besides when we elected a new president or something.

You think two fans were sitting in the stands of a baseball game like,

Ya know what this game needs? Peanuts, beer and more America.

According to Harper's aunt, Cindy Roberts, the little girl received a standing ovation after her rendition of the anthem.

I would stand up too, and not just because I was afraid Harper's eerily slow song would play over in my nightmares.

I would follow Harper into any battle as she sings the version of the national anthem we, as lazy Americans, truly deserve. God bless, and God speed Harper.
