Oh, Canada Games 

A hefty lineup starts up the 2011 games and JRDN kicks off the ceremonies with the national anthem.

Halifax's Jordan Croucher (now better known as JRDN) has been popping up on radios across Canada, owning Much Music and just finished a national tour with Danny Fernandez. But you might not have known he was a Canada Games athlete once too (JRDN shared his basketball skills with team Nova Scotia for summer games in '97). Now, he's bringing it full circle and singing the national anthem to begin the 2011 winter games. "I just know how big this is for teenagers in sport. I remember being there so I just can't wait to see the kids, and their families, and how excited they are." JRDN's in great company, too: The kick-off lineup also includes Chantal Kreviazuk, The Trews, Grand Dérangement, Jimmy Rankin, Rich Aucoin, The Stanfields, and Tanya Davis.

Friday, February 11, The Metro Centre, 5284 Duke Street, 7pm, $32-50
