Video: Zooey Deschanel: Star-Spangled Banner (World Series)

We first saw She & Him’s Zooey Deschanel perform for an MLB postseason game last fall when she — and her husband, Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard — did “God Bless America” and the National Anthem, respectively, for the NLCS.  Tonight, the star of Fox’s New Girl/lead singer of the holiday season’s most anticipated Christmas album opened up game 4 of the World Series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals with the debut of her take on America’s anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Below, check out a video of Deschanel’s wonderfully understated, yet reverent, take on the song.
