Back-To-Back U.S.A. and Canadian National Anthems Go Viral Together


“Who did it better?” seems to be to be the question of the evening, but does it really matter? They both killed it.

American R&B singer Fantasia, who previously became a star after appearing on American Idol, just sang “The Star Spangled Banner…”

Then Canadian singer and songwriter Alessia Cara followed up by singing “Oh Canada”—at Game Two of the NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors are playing against each other at the Scotiabank Arena in Ontario. People are now analyzing which song was better, but the truth is that both singers did a beautiful job. Fantasia delivered a powerful anthem for the visiting team and Alessia got most of the Canadian crowd to sing along with her. The back-to-back vocal performances were packed with heart and soul.
