Singer Forgets Words to National Anthem Before Memorial Cup Game

anthemSASKATOON, CANADA – There comes that moment right before a big game where a singer takes the stage and sings the national anthem.

For Canadian Jazz singer Alexis Normand, it’ll be a moment she’ll never forget because she forgot the words.

The crowd started shouting, but Alexis still gave it a second try and still messed it up.

Alexis says she was asked to perform and learn the song that morning, so she didn’t have much time. And she says nerves just got the best of her.

The crowd also played nice. Instead of eating her up like vultures, they sang along with her and helped her finish.
