Drake + More to Perform at NHL All-Star Game in Ontario
Drake is returning to his homeland of Canada this weekend, but not to visit his family or friends. Drizzy is scheduled to perform some of his hits at the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa, Ontario on Jan. 29.
Although the 'Headlines' rapper -- who will take the stage during the second intermission according to the Hollywood Reporter -- is the biggest act on the bill, he won't be the only musician present to entertain viewers. Drizzy will be in good company, as newcomers Javier Colon and Outasight will also perform.
'The Voice' champ Javier Colon (from Connecticut) will be performing the National Anthem at the NHL All-Star Game -- hopefully he doesn't pull a Steven Tyler and butcher the song or a Christina Aguilera and forget the lyrics! However, this is doubtful considering Colon has a smooth, silky voice and will surely be feeling the pressure of nailing it since he's a newcomer to the mainstream music scene.
Up-and-coming singer Outasight will also perform prior to the 2012 NHL All-Star Game. The New York native, whose real name is Richard Andrews, will perform his hit song 'Tonight Is the Night' during the player's introductions, just before the game kicks off.
The 2012 NHL All-Star Game will air on Sunday, Jan. 29, on the NBC Sports Network.
