Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Aretha Franklin’s lengthy ver­sion of the na­tional an­them ahead of the Detroit Lions-Min­nesota Vik­ings matchup may have been as much a topic at Thanks­giv­ing din­ner as the game it­self.

Franklin’s “Star Span­gled Ban­ner” clocked in at 4-min­utes, 35 sec­onds on Thurs­day. That’s com­pared to about 2-min­utes, 20 sec­onds for Whit­ney Hous­ton’s iconic ren­di­tion of the song ahead of the Su­per Bowl

Aretha Franklin per­forms the na­tional an­them be­fore an NFL foot­ball game be­tween the Detroit Lions and the Min­nesota Vik­ings Thurs­day in Detroit.
