Carly Rae Jepsen is doing Canada proud with her beautiful vocals.
The “Call Me Maybe” singer performed a stirring rendition of “O’Canada” at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday.
Jepsen did not try to reinvent the wheel when singing Canada’s national anthem; instead, she delivered a sweet and simple rendition of “O’Canada”. After all, not much else is needed when you have a voice as lovely as Jepsen’s.
Two members of the Toronto Raptors represented Canada at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game. Those players are Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry.
Grammy winner Anthony Hamilton was tasked with singing the U.S. national anthem. Meanwhile, “Middle Child” rapper J. Cole — often considered among the three-best rappers of this generation, with Kendrick Lamar and Drake — was the halftime show performer.
Notable NBA players at this year’s All-Star game include Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. See reaction to Jepsen’s performance below.
