Did you know that the Star-Spangled Banner has four verses? We didn't, until a tumble down the Wikipedia rabbit hole led to that discovery. And neither did most of the players and fans at a late-August Lehigh Valley IronPigs game, all of whom were introduced to that fact by the formidable vocal chords of "Kinky Boots" star and The Deafening frontwoman Lena Hall.

Heaps of gratitude to the IronPigs for welcoming our crew, and to Lena for performing the most stirring rendition of the Anthem (of any length) that anyone in attendance has ever heard live. Your move, Beyoncé.
