In a rendition distinct from another other, former NBA player and current basketball analyst Charles Barkley delivered his own span on One Shining Moment at the start of CBS' coverage of the NCAA Tournament. 

The song was first performed by David Barrett, but has since been covered by Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross and Jennifer Hudson. The song has been played along with a montage of the tournament at the end of every national championship game since 1987. 

Barkley's musical chops is not nearly as impressive as Pendergrass or Vandross, but it certainly was an interesting way to kick off the NCAA Tournament. 

 

Barkley's performance sure created a stir early Thursday afternoon on social media. Many called Barkley's performance 'terrible.'
