With the Olympics commercial featuring Marvin Gaye's rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner," I was surprised by how many people hadn't seen the full version performed at the 1983 NBA All Star Game. It's only arguably the best ever performance of the National Anthem!

So fabulous...They don't make them like him anymore!

As a bonus, check out a special duet with daughter Nona Gaye of the same rendition at the 2004 NBA All Star Game after the jump!
