BEYONCE SANG THE NATIONAL ANTHEM LIVE, SOUND PRODUCTION EXPERTS CONFIRM

230113_beyonce1a
After receiving intense backlash for reportedly lip-syncing her way through the National Anthem at Barack Obama’s Inauguration, sound production experts reported that she was actually singing live. The 31-year-old has been subject to severe backlash after a spokeswoman for the Marine Corps Band said the singer had a pre-recorded backing track playing as she allegedly mimed along to ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’
However, experts at ProductionAdvice.co.uk have analysed the footage extensively and argue that Beyonce was indeed singing live although a backing track may have been present. Apparently, there are several signs that Beyonce wasn’t miming: “When she starts singing, her voice is hard to hear – the microphone gain is too low,” the first piece of evidence states.
“The sound-man quickly corrects this – but if we were listening to a recording this wouldn’t happen – in fact back-up recordings are used to solve exactly this kind of problem,” the blog continues. The second piece of evidence is what’s known as the “proximity effect” where the music becomes more “bassy” while the final piece is that the sound of the song changes as Beyonce moves her mouth into a smile.
