Grammy Winner Victory Boyd on What It Means to Be Brave in America


On the premier episode of CHD Live’sWhat’s Your View?” Grammy Award winner Victory Boyd and her father, John Boyd, discuss how Victory’s scheduled appearance on the NFL season opener was scuttled at the last minute because she wouldn’t get the COVID vaccine.

Victory told Sumayyah Simone, the show’s host, all the arrangements had been made. They’d confirmed with someone at the NFL that she just needed a negative COVID test — but at the last minute, an NFL official said unless she got the vaccine, she couldn’t sing the national anthem at the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys in Tampa Bay.

“I can understand the need for precautionary measures,” Victory said. “But this was not a matter of public safety, otherwise a simple negative COVID test would have been sufficient.”

She pointed out that the vaccine rule is arbitrarily applied — fans and players weren’t required to get the vaccine.

Victory opened the segment with her rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner,” followed by a discussion of what it means to be brave in today’s America.

Watch a new episode of  “What’s Your View” every Tuesday on CHD TV at 9 a.m. PT / Noon ET.
