Russell entertained the guests at the US Embassy’s Election Night Party in London on Tuedsay night.
As the Presidential candidates, and the rest of the world, awaited the result from the States, Americans everywhere celebrated their nation’s freedom to vote and to decide their own destiny. The US Embassy hosted a party in Grosvenor Square and Russell was honoured to be asked to sing their National Anthem, ‘Star Spangled Banner’.
Twitter was all abuzz with the news of this performance and Russell seems to have made a suitable impression on the guests despite needing to read the words… well, it’s not the National Anthem that he’s used to.
An all-too-brief video clip of Russell singing has been posted on YouTube…
“God Bless America”
