Opera Singer Performs 'Star-Spangled Banner' From Paris Window

Paris opera singer Stéphane Malbec Senechal performed The Star-Spangled Banner from his window on November 9 to honor US President-elect Joe Biden, media reported.

The video – which Senechal originally posted to Instagram – shows the singer appearing in the window and singing along with a recording of the American national anthem. He belts the anthem to a group of people gathered on the street below.

Senechal told Storyful he sang the anthem because, “a new star shines in the sky, the star of solidarity.”

“In my opinion, with Biden, solidarity is first, and I love it,” he said. Credit: Stéphane Malbec Senechal via Storyful
