Some of you probably might have heard we were on The Today Show on July 4th, 2013. For those were not able to see the show here is the segment. It was called “Today’s Take” and featured Mel B, aka Scary Spice, from the Spice Girls. Apparently she is not a dog person though.
Even though Scary Spice didn’t like Cody and Sierra’s singing and version of the Star Spangled Banner we hope to have another chance to be on The Today Show. I like how Willie Geist says, “Alright, getting technical with dogs.” jokingly. Clearly Willie is more of a dog person I guess.
What did you think of Scary Spice’s opinion of the Cody and Sierra’s “singing?” Did you think it was a fair or unfair assessment of the dogs musical talents?
Cody, Sierra, and I did a great video today of us performing “The Star Spangled Banner” which is the US National Anthem. (I assume people know but you really don’t know sometimes.) I think it came out pretty well so check it out. Sierra doesn’t start singing until about 20 seconds into the video by the way.
What’s cool about The Star Spangled Banner is that the it was written by Francis Scott Key in Baltimore while he was watching For McHenry be attacked by the British. The Singing Dogs are from Baltimore which not only makes it a patriotic tribute but a point of pride for two Baltimore dogs. At least I think that is what Cody and Sierra were trying to convey musically in this rendition of America’s National Anthem.
We hope everyone has a great Fourth of July. The Singing Dogs and I are grateful to live in the United States where we freely and openly express ourselves through music.
If you think Cody and Sierra did a great job with the Star Spangled Banner please leave a comment below and let us know.
