SALT LAKE CITY - Her rendition of the National Anthem at the Summit County fair made a singer the talk of the internet after officials publicly apologized for what the crowd heard.

Some blasted her online questioning whether she was drunk; Jennie Lea insists she wasn't.

"I understand why they thought that I was completely hammered. I listened to the recordings and I was like - wow."

Lea says she finds peace in the beauty around her childhood home - and that's exactly what she needed after becoming an unwanted meme.

"It was definitely a huge dig into my pride into who I am."

The singer said she's been trolled online because of her bad moment.

"When I started singing I was like this is not going to be good," she explained.

She said feedback and not having a sound check before the performance is what led to the poor vocals.

"I just tried to do the right thing,and keep on going."
