Canada Made Me Very Proud [VIDEO]
When Canadian country music artist Brett Kissel was about to perform the "Star Spangled Banner" before a Stanley Cup playoff hockey game in Edmonton, Canada last evening, he knew immediately that he was having mic difficulties. At that moment, Kissel realized that he needed help from a few fellow Canadians. 18,000 of them came to the rescue!
That's when the entire arena assisted the voiceless singer in a stirring rendition of our National Anthem. This is awesome, and certainly has the internet buzzing this morning with a simple question: Would you be able to recite "O Canada" if the same thing were happen here? I know I wouldn't! I would be able to bring home *perhaps* the last line of the song. "O Canada, we stand on guard for thee" (2 times of course)
The Anaheim Ducks took the game last night 6-3 over the hometown Oilers and while hockey usually isn't on my radar in terms of sports I have a vested interest in, I'll be rooting for the Oilers in this years Playoffs.
Guess I better brush up on their players, and their anthem.
Microphone not working? Lead the arena in a sing-along of the national anthem. 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/yRgVoqnzZG
