Published Jun 13, 2019The Toronto Raptors return to Oakland tonight play the Golden State Warriors (and hopefully take home the NBA Championship), and it's been revealed that Sarah McLachlan will be singing the Canadian national anthem.
Her take on "O Canada" follows Game 5's fan - led rendition — a decision that followed a rather unfortunate performance by Walk Off the Earth in Game 4.
The band's performance wasn't the only one that caused controversy; many criticized Saskatchewan country singer Tenille Arts for her pre-Game 3 performance, as well.
McLachlan seems like a pretty safe bet to deliver a succinct and in-tune rendition of the anthem, at least that's probably what organizers are hoping.
As for the American anthem, it will be sung by Train frontman Pat Monahan.
The game starts at 9 p.m. EDT tonight.
