National Anthem Singer Takes a Knee & Raises a Black Fist at Lions Game (VIDEO)
After President Donald Trump’s comments on Friday, which took aim at the multiple players kneeling during the playing of the national anthem, many knew NFL Sunday would be filled with protests.
No one had a clue that an actual anthem singer would join in.
Singer Rico Lavelle did just that before the Detroit Lions’ home game against the Atlanta Falcons. Immediately after the song was finished, he took a knee and raised his fist in the air.
