The Tenors are getting lots of attention for their performance of the Canadian National Anthem at the MLB All Star Game Tuesday night, but not the good kind. The group says one member, Remigio Pereira, will no longer perform with the Canadian vocal quartet until further notice, placing the blame solely on him for altering the O Canada lyrics. Pereira chose to include the phrase “all lives matter,” and held up a sign saying the same, in his rendition.
The Tenors are based in British Columbia.
Check out the video below to see how it went down. You can also read more about it here.
You can check out some of Pereira’s tweets after the performance here:
