Charlotte Cardin Will Perform the Canadian National Anthem at the 2024 NBA All-Star Game
It's been a big month for the Montreal artist, who garnered six Juno nominations last week.
On the heels of becoming the most-nominated artist for this year's Juno Awards, Montreal pop singer Charlotte Cardin is adding another accomplishment to her roster: she'll be opening the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 18, performing the Canadian national anthem.
She appears alongside a star-studded lineup: legendary producer Babyface will be performing the American anthem, and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson will be the halftime performer. Coco Jones will also be performing, while Lil Wayne is serving as an assistant coach.
On top of her six Juno nominations and the NBA announcement, Cardin also performed four dates in a row at Laval's Bell Centre last week, and heads to Toronto's Massey Hall this week. Cardin, who was named a Billboard CanadaBreakthrough Artist of 2023, will additionally perform at the Juno Awards in Halifax this March.
Cardin is nominated for Junos for album of the year and pop album of the year for her sophomore record 99 Nights, as well as single of the year for the infectious "Confetti," songwriter of the year, artist of the year and TikTok fan choice.
As her star rises in Canada, the All-Star game appearance is an indication that Cardin, who has charted multiple times in Canada but has yet to chart in the United States, is turning heads south of the border. The All-Star game had nearly five million viewers last year (roughly one million viewers have tuned into the Juno Awards in recent years). It's only February, but 2024 is already looking like a slam dunk for Cardin.
The All-Star game airs February 18 at 8 p.m. EST.
