Alessia Cara shone bright as the giants of basketball gathered Sunday (March 7) for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game.

No, the Canadian singer and songwriter didn’t hit any deep threes or dish any sweet assists during the annual contest. The Grammy Award winner nabbed the spotlight when she performed her country’s national anthem remotely from Toronto, hometown of the 2019 NBA champion Raptors.

Gladys Knight featured in the celebrations with a performance of the Star-Spangled Banner.

For the record, Team LeBron dominated Team Duran to a scoreline of 170-150, with Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo taking MVP honors.

Below, watch Cara "O Canada" in a clip that was posted on the official NBA Twitter account after the performance aired on TNT.
