Josie Sings the Star Spangled Banner

 
Josie Duggar

If you are a long-time follower of our blog and fan of the Duggar family, you probably know that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar place a high importance on music education for their children. A segment of 19 Kids and Counting that aired about eight years ago featured a then-toddler Josie Duggar singing the Star Spangled Banner. Do you remember watching that?

Then in 2018, the Duggars uploaded a YouTube video of Josie singing the national anthem. Now, three-and-a-half years later, Elizabeth Bontrager, a friend of the Duggars, posted another video of Josie of Josie, who turns 12 in December, singing the same song (link below). Keep up the good work Josie!

    1. Why? A lot of singers don't have coaches.

    2. 6:39 pm. I guess that's why there is autotune.

      Delete
    3. 6:39, because that is what I wondered.

    4. Anon - 6:39 - Many of the best ones do have coaches. No need to be so defensive. Maybe the poster just wants the best for Josie.

      Delete
    5. These days everyone use auto tune, not coaches.

      Delete
    6. 8:47, then why are there still vocal coaches?

  18. Any news on Anna's baby #7?

    Replies
    1. Nobody wants to hear about Josh and Anna.

      Delete
    2. Not that I've heard of:( I don't know if we will ever find out? Praying for peace and strength for Anna and the kids as Josh's trail comes up 🙏🏻

      Delete
    3. It’s absolutely NOT true that NOBODY wants to hear about Josh & Anna!!!! Only the people who can’t forgive, and don’t have a heart for humanity that don’t want to hear about them or Josh in particular! 😢
      I honestly believe that he’s innocent in this allegation and it’s all terribly blown up just because people can’t forgive and give him a chance for the mistakes he made when he was underaged!!!! 😡

      Delete
    4. 11:18 I want to hear about Anna and her beautiful kids. Praying for her!

      Delete
    5. I've been hoping to hear news of Anna's baby, too.

      Delete
    6. 11:18, then why are people asking?

      Delete
    7. @11:18 YOU may not want to hear but there are some of us who do so speak for yourself! 😠

      Delete
    8. Definitely want to hear about their baby and praying every day that Josh would not be falsely accused and that the truth will come out

  22. She really is the miracle child! I remember watching the episode of her birth and the issues that followed afterwards, I really didn't think she was going to make it .

    1. Well praise God that she did make it!

  23. Nice job! Is this the only song she sings solo?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Heard Josie sing this a few years ago & felt she did a nice job for a child of her age but I totally disagreed at the time of people saying she was brilliant. However a few years down the line & Josie’s voice has matured & grown immensely. Her pitch was excellent & I believe with voice coaching to help her breathing to hit the high notes, Josie could have a wonderful talent ahead of her. Well done Josie, your family must be so proud of all you achieve.

    1. MO- Oh sure, she'll get better with age. But a little encouragement goes a long way. Not all children can stand up in front of a crowd and sing. :o)

      Delete
    2. She sounds like any other good singer starting out as a kid. I hope you guys do the same to the kids at the kids choir at schools or churches. You are not professional judges and this is just a kid.

      Delete
  25. She certainly grew up fast!
