Saskatchewan singer proud despite flak over anthem at NBA final

A Saskatchewan-born country singer says she has no regrets about putting her own spin on "O Canada" before Game 3 of the NBA finals last night. Tenille Arts says she heard from a lot of people who loved her rendition of the national anthem. The 25-year-old, who is originally from Weyburn, admits there were negative online comments about some flourishes she added to the melody. She says her goal as a Canadian was to sing the anthem with pride, and that's exactly what she did. Arts says she found out a week ago that she would be performing "O Canada" and that she was nervous and excited. Members of Metallica performed an instrumental version of U.S. anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner". The Toronto Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 123-109 in Oakland to take a 2-1 lead in the championship series.
