Woman Behind Viral National Anthem Video Credits 'The Holy Spirit' for Its Success

Just in time for the Independence Day - a women's spontaneous rendition of the national anthem has gone viral. G. Star Swain, the woman singing in the video, believes the reason it touched so many people had nothing to do with her, but it was "the Holy Spirit." 

"It didn't matter what the song was but it was the spirit behind the song. And we know that was the Holy Spirit. I had nothing to do with that, "she told CBN News' Efrem Graham in an interview via skype Thursday. 

The video of Swain singing the national anthem earlier this month at Lincoln Memorial has gotten more than 30 million views.

She added, "It is the anointing that destroys the yokes—hands down—and I try to teach the praise and worship team at my church that, when we're working together. It's the Holy Spirit that will always make the difference. Your gift is a gift. It can sound as beautiful as it wants to but if there is no anointing, no yokes will be destroyed." 

Swain lives in Tallahassee, Florida, and stays busy. She records videos for her YouTube channel , serves as the praise and worship leader at her church and is an Assistant Principal at a local school. She says singing is something that is at the heart of who she is.

"This is not something new for me. This has been a dream and a passion of mine for a long time," she said.
