When singing live you have to take it as it comes and hope that nothing goes wrong. When it does put your head down, plow through it and hope no one notices. It is tough to hide problems when the microphone goes out as you are about to start the Star-Spangled Banner, In front of 40,000 fans.After trying to start the song twice Canadian recording artist Brett Kissel did what he had to do after his…” microphone was not being picked up inside Rogers Place (it could, however, be heard on the TV broadcast) before Game 3 of the Western Conference Second Round between the Anaheim Ducks and Edmonton Oilers, the country-music star solicited help from the crowd.” Via NHL.com.In an incredible show of respect the fans stood and sung the National Anthem, and stunningly knew all the words. It is probably safe to say that if the roles were reversed and the mic failed at the start of the Canadian anthem we Americans wouldn’t know the words to O’ Canada. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.Thank you, very much Canadian hockey fans, for keeping it classy and being awesome at being nice. Much love and respect to the people of Edmonton and Canada.
