    How about local talent in the D.C. area? I'm sure there are some high school or college students who would be interested!

    My 2 high school daughters can sing well.
    If God himself got off his throne, descended from the heavens, trumpetted at my door, and announced that I was wasting my time trying to get Ron Paul into the Whitehouse, I would thank him for his concern and ask him to leave me to my business. I've wasted lots of time on far less noble causes. ~RockEnds

    There are several Universities in DC with Music Programs and Departments... Howard, The Catholic University, University of Maryland (I would not bother with Galludet, GW, Trinity, American or Georgetown). They have summer programs and you could find an individual or small chorus. Some have summer band programs as well. You also have the Marine Band (they work all year and are pretty good) as well as the Army chorus and band. DC also has the children's opera theatre and most of these organizations have members (or students) who would volunteer their services.

    A few quick calls and you should be able to find what you need.

    Oh... the congressional staffers also have a chorus

    Not tooting my own horn here, but I have sang and played guitar since I was nine years old...never mind how many years ago that was...
    but I also have sung the National Anthem on television before the Wichita Thunder hockey games, and also on national television before the Green Bay games hockey games.

    I am able, and I would be willing. I have some mp3's of my band, and me singing, if you are interested. Let me know.

    my suggestions

    Liberty University has a singing group called "the voices of liberty". They sang at the march for life this past January in Washington. Ron Paul spoke at this event and I am sure he left an impression on these folks and they are relatively close to the area and from my understanding, are always looking for places to perform outside of the campus. You can find youtube videos from that event and some of them show the group performing (sorry I do not have links).

    If they do not work out than may I suggest Aimee Allen. She has a very distinct voice and almost everyone in this movement knows who she is. I would also suggest Marc Scibillia since he is going to be there already.

    (I would not bother with Galludet, GW, Trinity, American or Georgetown).

    HA! Gallaudet University is my alma mater! To set records straight, they do not have any vocal singers because it is DEAF University....

    They can sing in American Sign Language only, I'm lil embarrassed to say this. I was one of 6 students who sang and signed National Anthem at RedSkins Football Game (1992). Great experience tho!

    I'm not far from DC and I'm planning to attend. Don't currently have a youtube but can make one.

    However, my vote goes for the military band and/or chorus doing the National Anthem. How cool would that be!?
    If God himself got off his throne, descended from the heavens, trumpetted at my door, and announced that I was wasting my time trying to get Ron Paul into the Whitehouse, I would thank him for his concern and ask him to leave me to my business.

    I'd do it, but I want to help attract support for Ron Paul, not repel it. And the resulting barrage of flying rotten produce the second I opened my mouth would not help that aim.

    WOW, I just listened to these young folk-They are fantastic!!! It is not easy to sing the national anthem A Capella in perfect harmony they way they did it-it brought tears to my eyes just listening, its so beautiful!!! They sing it with the reverence and sincerity this song deserves, and every note is perfect! My siblings and I used to get together and sing A Capella, and I can tell you firsthand, this is a challenging song to sing in harmony, because of the wide range of the notes, but these guys have it perfected. I have never heard them prior to this, but please choose them-they will inspire the hearts and minds and the way they sing it, will make others really think about the shape our country is in today.

    I sang the National Anthem for the SAn Antonio Spurs game. What's the pay? is Travel included? TONES

    I have a suggestion. You could try to get one of the military bands tasked to play at the march. I was in the Army Band for 7 years..and we played for all sorts of events. You have some right around the area. They are fantastic and they do it for free.(well for tax dollars lol) but they typically have wonderful vocalists and they could open up the event..before the speakers...fabulous patriotic music. If you are interested better do it now...it would be easy enough for them to get there if they aren't out of town. You have to call the band hall and talk to the NCO in charge of tasking and put in a request. They might like to do it. They also have rock bands, jazz ensembles etc. I think that would be a great way to start the entertainment off. TONES
