Tenors apologize for a political statement made during the singing of O Canada
It happened prior to a Major League Baseball all-star game last night in San Diego.
During The Tenors’ performance, a line in the national anthem was changed to “We’re all brothers and sisters, all lives matter to the great.”
The normal lyric is “With glowing hearts we see thee rise. The True North strong and free.”
The quartet posted a statement on Facebook, blaming the altered lyric on group member Remigio Pereira, saying he acted as a “lone wolf” to serve his own political views.
We want to hear from you. Is there any issue that would justify changing the lyrics of our national anthem?
