Who is the best singer of the National Anthem?

Move over “The Voice.” FMC has found its own crop of young singers by hosting the “Anthem Singing Contest” to promote its new Anthem herbicide, EPA registration pending. FMC says it is investing in farming’s future by hosting the contest, open to active members of a nationally recognized agricultural-related club.

Four finalists remain, and FMC needs you to determine which one you think should win the $25,000 college scholarships.

I once thought I could sing like Barbra Streisand (http://agwired.com/2007/07/30/ams-idol-contestant-jodie-wehrspan/). But I don’t stand a chance against these four young crooners, who just returned from Nashville after working with professional musicians to record their own version of the National Anthem. There’s Allison Nohre, 18, of De Pere, Wis.; Jessica Smith, 17, from Picayune, Miss.; Katie Wesler, 20, Birmingham, Ala., and; Lexie Sistrunk, 13, Oak Grove, La.

They’ve all made the Star Spangled Banner their own, injecting licks, trills and runs rivaled only by a girl in a Chinese grocery store, whose video went viral last week. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbZ1BaNxAocNow it’s your chance to be heard by voting for your favorite.

You can hear their auditions on the FMC website, where you can cast your vote. Voting ends October 19th —  http://www.fmccrop.com/grower/Anthem-Singing-Contest.aspx. The four finalists also will be featured on RFD-TV on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 9:00 p.m. (CDT)/10:00 p.m. (EDT).

Best of luck to all of them!
