Original image

On this day in 1911, ground was broken for Fenway Park. Though there have since been attempts to update and move the park, fans feel strongly about the storied baseball stadium. Here, six famous national anthem singers at Fenway Park.

Smokey Robinson

Smokey sang his arrangement for Game 5 of the 1986 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets.

Eli "Paperboy" Reed

Forgive the video from behind. Reed performed on October 3, 2010.


On May 31, 2009, Phish sang to a thrilled crowd.

James Taylor

The acclaimed singer performed at Game 2 of the 2007 World Series. While the video is from a distance, Taylor's unmistakable voice is clear and strong.

Aaron Neville

Neville sang on August 28, 2009 in support of the Jimmy Fund, which raises money for cancer research.


Best known for their song "Still the One," Orleans performed in 2006.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Cover art for Laura Kumin's forthcoming cookbook

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
