Singer-songwriter Anthony Hamilton mesmerized the crowd at Sunday night’s NBA All-Star game with a rendition of the national anthem that had many drawing comparisons to last years’ much-derided performance by Fergie.

Hamilton’s performance immediately drew comparisons to what many – until now – regarded as the greatest performances of the National Anthem: Marvin Gaye during the 1983 NBA All-Star Game.

The 48-year-old Charlotte, N.C. native is perhaps best known for his 2003 album “Comin’ Where I’m From.”
