The magic of another NBA All Star weekend has come and gone but with three players representing from north of the border, Canadian pride for their NBA team was evident from beginning to end. And who better to deliver the Canadian National Anthem than a fellow Canuck.

Toronto-born folk-rock powerhouse, Serena Ryder, made the trip to the Big Easy for All Star festivities. She shone at center court, performing the Canadian National Anthem, even inspiring fellow Canadian and music artist Drake to sing proudly from his courtside seats.
Tweets poured in from fellow Canadians about Serena’s performance:
Nice job!…Serena Ryder just nailed the National Anthem at the NBA All Star game#OhCanada
