Man Paints Iwo Jima Flag Raising While Singing National Anthem At Minor League Hockey Game [VIDEO]

Joe Everson sang the Star-Spangled Banner while painting the historic flag raising at Iwo Jima during World War II.

Everson was invited by the Toledo Walleye, a minor league team of the Detroit Red Wings, to sing prior to the game, and he stunned the crowd as painted one of the most famous moments in American history. (SLIDESHOW: These Photos Are Proof That Carrie Underwood Is The Most Stunning NHL WAG)


Colin Kaepernick and several other NFL players might find it appropriate to protest the national anthem, but it’s refreshing to see a stadium go wild as America honors its heroes.

It’s also going to be pretty tough for anybody who follows Everson at the next game to match his performance.
