The performance of the national anthem before a major sporting event is huge. Not only is it a moment to reflect on the patriotic principles of freedom and liberty, it bottles those last moments of anticipation and butterflies before the big game. When the last echoes of "and the home of the brave" subside, it's game on.
Whether it's the NFL's Super Bowl, the NBA Finals or a big boxing match, a cluster of GRAMMY winners and nominees have performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at major sporting events with aplomb.

In celebration of the recent release of RESPECT (Aug. 13), in which Jennifer Hudson embodies the one and only Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, GRAMMY.com wants to know: What is your favorite music biopic?
A popular and compelling way to explore the lives of the artists and musicians we love, music biopics have experienced a major spike recently, with at least one major film seemingly released every year. Lady Sings The Blues (1972) saw disco queen Diana Ross embody Billie Holiday, while Andra Day tackled the heartbreaking role in this year's The United States vs. Billie Holiday. 1997 gave us a young Jennifer Lopez as Selena in Selena, 2005 turned Joaquin Phoenix into Johnny Cash in Walk the Line, and 2019 catapulted Taron Egerton into superstardom via his starring role as Elton John in Rocketman.
Vote now for your favorite music biopic in the below poll; it will remain open until Tuesday, Sept. 7, after which you can come back to see the final voting results.
