Video: Man sings national anthem while painting patriotic picture

One of the most impressive and unique renditions of the national anthem was performed before an ECHL game this weekend.

Artist Joe Everson sang the Star-Spangled Banner a game between the Toledo Walleye and Brampton Beast before adding a visual twist to the national anthem like never before. Not only was Everson singing, he was simultaneously painting a portrait.

It was difficult to tell what Everson was painting throughout the song, but eventually he flipped the painting for the big reveal at the end and it was none other than a painting of the historic Joe Rosenthal photo from World War II, “Raising The Flag on Iwo Jima.”

Check out his brilliance at work:
