Nothing gets a playoff game on the right foot than a great rendition of the national anthem. A saxophone player named Mike Smith played it before the host Atlanta Falcons took on the Seattle Seahawks in a playoff game.
It was outstanding. His run of high notes at the end had the Georgia Dome roaring.
The performance was definitely noticed on social media, as many on Twitter were so impressed they had to comment on it.

I'm normally not an instrument playing the National Anthem guy. This ? rendition at Seahawks/Falcons gm got me hyped.

Can we just agree to replace singing the National Anthem with sax solos from now on?

Saw Mike Phillips perform with Stevie Wonder last month.. This guy is amazing.

So we can all agree: nobody will ever sing the national anthem again. Only saxophones.
