Singing the national anthem in front of any crowd is hard. Just ask Christina Aguilera!
A bit of advice? Keep it simple, stupid. Just focus on the lyrics and melody and you’re less likely to embarrass yourself.
Well, Canucks anthem singer Mark Donnelly didn’t heed that advice. He decided to show off during a recent home game and ended up flat on his face…literally!
Donnelly skated across the rink while belting out “O Canada” and was so distracted, he didn’t notice the red carpet laid out for pre-game festivities. He tripped and hit the ice pretty hard and we’re trying so hard not to laugh right now!
To his credit, he never stops singing, but maybe do yourself a favor, Mark, and cut all the bells and whistles next time?
