British Connection at the Inauguration Ceremony?

My lovely wife thought that because I am British, I would not be interested in the Inauguration ceremony. However, I was very intrigued when I heard Aretha Franklin singing ‘My Country Tis of Thee’ to the tune of the British National Anthem. Anyone know the roots of how that came to be?

    Not sure Phil.
    But when I saw the title of your post I first thought you were referring to Aretha Franklin’s hat and it’s possible similarity to one that the queen has worn…hee hee.
    That is some hat!
    Long live the queen!
