It could be Canadian history in the making, with the Toronto Raptors potentially clinching the NBA title against the Golden State Warriors . “ It ’ s a crazy big deal ,” Sarah said, about to board her flight to California. “We as Canadians don’t get that many opportunities to celebrate being Canadian

"It's a crazy big deal," McLachlan said from the Vancouver International Airport, where she was about to board her flight to California.

"We as Canadians don't get that many opportunities to celebrate being Canadian ... and I love that I get to represent, in a small way, my country."

McLachlan said the NBA approached her about singing the anthem before the series began, but the only date she could swing with her busy schedule was June 13.

She says her approach to O Canada will be straight up.

"Quite frankly, everyone just wants you to get on with it to get to the game," she said. "So, I'm just going to sing it and I'm going to let the crowd sing. I'm sure there will be a lot of Canadians there to help."

McLachlan doesn't plan to wear her Raptors jersey until after the anthem is done.

And while the anthem will be a thrill, she's just as excited to watch the game in person.

"I hope that they win because they'll never forgive me if they don't," she laughed.

Patrick Monahan from the San Francisco rock band Train will sing the American anthem.
