Beautiful! As you probably know, when Canadian and U.S teams play against each other, the anthem singer sings both songs. Well, before the Anaheim Ducks/Edmonton Oilers game, the microphone gave out, which prompted Canadian music star Brett Kissel to ask the audience to sing America’s anthem. Boy did they ever. From The Washington Post:
After Kissel realized something was amiss with his microphone at the start of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” he gestured for the crowd to join him in an impromptu sing-along. The 18,000-plus fans in attendance, most of them Oilers fans, joined forces for a beautiful rendition of the American national anthem.
The mic worked in time for the Canadian anthem, but the crowd belted out that tune as well.
Thank you, Canada!
