June's Diary, an American girl group formed by former Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland, has social media stopped in its tracks after delivering a life-giving rendition of “The Negro National Anthem” at Ludacris' charity basketball game.

This is definitely one national anthem we can all get up and stand for.

Twitter user Jessie Karangu tweeted out part of the young ladies' performance after it started going viral on Facebook. His tweet has already racked up over 27,000 retweets.


But the girls did try to warn us. Before their jaw-dropping performance, they had posted an Instagram video of them rehearsing, a performance that is equally beautiful.

Rehearsing the national anthem ❤️ thank you @ludacris for this opportunity and allowing us to support your amazing charity
