WATCH: Charles Barkley sings ‘One Shining Moment’

Charles Barkley sings 'One Shining Moment'

The iconic song of the NCAA tournament like you’ve never heard it before.

Charles Barkley, NBA legend and basketball analyst for Turner Sports, provided his rendition of “One Shining Moment” for a Super Bowl commercial to promote TBS’ coverage of the NCAA tournament, and for the first time, the national championship game.

The version used after the national champion is crowned since 2003 (except for 2010) features Luther Vandross. Barkley’s version might not be mistaken for the one we're all familiar with, but it’s entertaining nonetheless.

Be on the lookout for the spot during CBS’s pregame coverage of the Super Bowl on Sunday, but if you want a sneak peak, you can watch it above.

This year’s NCAA tournament will include the national championship game airing to TBS, the first time the championship has ever been televised on cable television. The Final Four begins at NRG Stadium in Houston on April 2, and the championship game is on Monday, April 4.
