    For the Marine Band too call-out Beyonce's alleged act of lip-sinking needs to backoff. Why not just enjoy the inaugural
    and keep your negative comments in check while embracing the true essence of her blessings on such a wonderful day. Beyonce wasn't their to sing or to put on a show but out of respect for Dr. King's memory. Memory that Ronald Reagan decided to make an official law in1983 and observed for the first time on January 20, 1986.

    So, please save your comments as they're irrelevant to the true depth of what was taking place.

    If Beyonce was not ready to perform then she should have blackout of the gig. No excuse for lip sync the star spangle banner.
