COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMOX) - Before the Missouri Tigers took on the Kentucky Wildcats last week, anthem artist Joe Everson started the game with a moving performance. 

Everson painted while singing the National Anthem. It was hard to make out what he was painting in the beginning, but at the end of the anthem, Everson flipped his canvas to show the iconic image of soliders raising the flag on Iwo Jima.

The Tigers went on to defeat the Wildcats 69-60.
