The singing of the national anthem didn't go as planned at an area high school graduation, but the end result is getting a lot more attention online because of it.

East Limestone High School's seniors graduated Friday, and during the singing of the national anthem by Marti Beth McCrary, the microphone cut off.

Instead of the anthem ending with awkward silence, everyone in attendance picked up the singing and finished the anthem.
