Yes, T-Pain Can Sing Without Auto-Tune. Here He Is Belting the National Anthem to Prove It.

T-Pain can do more than romance mermaids on boats and buy girls drinks—he can also sing, and not just with the help of Auto-Tune. At a Los Angeles Dodgers game on Monday, T-Pain took “The Star-Spangled Banner” and made it his own, with a soulful delivery and beautifully unexpected melodic twists.

This isn’t the first time that T-Pain has proven that there are serious vocal chops hiding underneath his liberally Auto-Tuned hit singles. If you need further proof, check out his Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, which was easily one of the best things that’s ever happened to the Tiny Desk.
