Gotta give her a bit of credit.... She does have a good singing voice..

But, it's horrible for Anthems... She need to steer clear from it.. :sick:

She is better off sticking with songs that is more suitable with her voice..

Far too slow, but far from the worst rendition - she at least stayed on key... yeah I'm looking at you Jann Arden. When she sang in Calgary during the playoffs in 2004, her intervals were all over the map and she was cracking notes. That was painful.


I remember that, she didn't have a proper monitor system so she couldn't hear her own voice

When singers can't hear their own voice, disaster ensues

Ahahaha I love how Sid and Karlsson are trying so hard not to laugh!

That's pretty lame. The anthem singers make the performance about them so they try to maximize their time in the spotlight. But what they need to realize is that we the fans are not there for a concert. We're there for the hockey game, so they need to just sing the anthems the way they were meant to be sang and then get the heck off the ice.

For the players it must be annoying too. I mean they're standing there in one spot with their legs getting stiff while they wait for the ridiculously long anthems to be done with.

That's gotta change IMO

I hate when anthem singers try to sing in a flashy way, and change up the tune and tempo to make it more like a pop song. This isn't American Idol, so sing it properly. Mark Donnelly sings the anthem the way it's meant to be sung, and you can't say his version is boring.

Hahaha yeah that was bad. What was the guy wearing too? I mean for the love of God you're on national TV, can't you dress up a bit? I was sitting in my basement with my munchies thinking to myself 'Geeez I am dressed better than this guy".

lol I remember this. SOOO awful, and terrible. What idiot thought it would be a good idea to hire an actor, for your pre game introductions?! Well I guess, the same people who hired that thing to sing the national anthem. She is a giant gimmick, nothing more.

I watched this game with some friends (a sens fan, a leafs fan, and a habs fan). It was bad and none of us knew whether to laugh or not.

Definitely up there in worst anthem singers ever. The breaking point was during the Canadian anthem when Karlsson started cracking up

I could'nt listen all of that, that was awful. That lady sounded like an opera singer.

I am glad we have Donnelly to sing the anthem for the Canuck games. :)

This lady should be bannded from ever singing O Canada, if she is Canadian she sould be stripped of her citizenship and exiled from Canada!

Edit: My comments were a little harsh but she was just bad....I don't mind the opera singer because she can sing and know the lyrics.

Well from a technical standpoint she can sing. But she made the dumbest judgement call by dragging out the anthem to the point it was almost unbearable.
Mark Donnelly has the pipes but he doesn't drag O Canada out that long.

Marvin Gaye on the other hand, dragged out the Star Spangled Banner, but did it so beautifully and smoothly you could have listened to that for hours. That's why singers like Marvin are once in a generation type artists.
