Canadian Vocal group, The Tenors were performing the pre-game Canadian anthem at Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game in San Diego, when one of the four vocalists began singing his own rendition of “O, Canada.”
“We’re all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great,” sang Remigio Pereira. The group claim Pereira acted as a “lone wolf” after releasing an apology on their socials shortly after.

Pereira also held up a hand-written sign with “All Lives Matter” on the front and “United We Stand” on the reverse. As expected, controversy followed his events as this was just one week after the deadly shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile as well as the deaths of five police officers during a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.
Aside, Canadians also felt the singer disrespected their anthem. The Tenors have said Pereira won’t be performing with them for the indefinite future.
