Feb 20, 2023

Jully Black, a legendary Canadian singer-songwriter, received the opportunity to sing Canada’s national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night in Salt Lake City.

Black, however, made a one-word change to the song in an effort to acknowledge indigenous people.

"O Canada! Our home on native land," she sang in front of the thousands in attendance. The original lyrics to the song say, "Our home and native land."

Black received praise for the change.
