Monday, November 21, 2016 — TORONTO – Canada’s multi-platinum, JUNO Award-winning vocal group, The Tenors – Clifton Murray, Fraser Walters and Victor Micallef – will sing the national anthem at the 104th Grey Cup presented by Shaw, the Canadian Football League announced today. The Grey Cup will air across the country on November 27, beginning at 6 pm ET on TSN and RDS. The Tenors join previously announced artists slated for the biggest annual sporting event in Canada, including Grammy Award nominees OneRepublic who will headline the WIND Mobile Halftime Show, and Canadian sensation Alessia Cara who will headline the Sirius XM Kickoff Show.
This will mark the second time that The Tenors will sing Canada’s cherished anthem at the Grey Cup and the first time singing it now as a trio for a nationally televised audience.
“Clifton, Fraser and Victor of The Tenors are superbly talented and proudly Canadian, and we’re looking forward to having them sing Canada’s national anthem during this year’s Grey Cup in Toronto,” said Commissioner Jeffrey L. Orridge.
The Tenors are looking forward to sharing this quintessentially Canadian moment with the thousands of fellow CFL fans who will gather at BMO Field in Toronto.
“It is always a great honour for us to be asked to sing our treasured anthem for events at home or around the world. We are proudly Canadian and it doesn’t get any more Canadian than the Grey Cup. Thank you to the CFL and Commissioner Jeffrey Orridge for this amazing opportunity,” said The Tenors.
The Tenors not only deliver powerful and heartwarming performances for audiences around the world, they also lend their voices to raise awareness of important charitable causes. Over the last few months, they have performed at the Music for Mercy concert at the Vatican in Rome, the David Foster Foundation Miracle Gala and Concert in Winnipeg, Elton John’s World TeamTennis Smash Hits fundraising event in Las Vegas, and We Day in Vancouver. In addition, earlier this week, The Tenors delivered a show-stopping tribute to Smokey Robinson from the Gershwin Centre in Washington D.C.
Since 2008, the Canadian vocal super group has achieved international success, showcasing their undeniable charm and diverse vocal styles for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, on The Oprah Winfrey Show and at The Primetime Emmy Awards to name a few. In addition, they have also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music, including Paul McCartney, Sarah McLachlan, Neil Young, Andrea Bocelli, Stevie Wonder, David Foster, Celine Dion and more.
