While SpaceX's successful launch of the company's Crew Dragon manned spacecraft on Saturday was an historic moment, the highlight of a previously scrubbed launch on Wednesday may have been Kelly Clarkson's inspiring version of the National Anthem.

Clarkson performed an at-home rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" in a video that also included NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley preparing for their historic mission.

The launch on Wednesday was subsequently delayed due to weather, but Clarkson's performance of the National Anthem still drew rave reviews.

"I'm over the moon about being asked to participate in #LaunchAmerica … get it? I love space jokes," Clarkson said on Twitter ahead of the launch.

The successful launch on Saturday marked the first crewed space mission to be launched from U.S. soil since 2011.
