Jessie Reyez makes history performing from the top of Toronto’s CN Tower EdgeWalk

Jessie Reyez has made history as the first artist ever to perform both the American and Canadian National Anthems from the top of Toronto’s CN Tower EdgeWalk ahead of Round 1 Game 1 of the Toronto Raptors’ NBA Playoff Series.

The larger than life event is groundbreaking for television and solidifies another incredible moment in the early career of one of the most talked-about artists of 2020.

The internationally-televised performance aired yesterday on Monday, August 17, during the late afternoon game between the NBA champions and the Brooklyn Nets.

It's been a busy summer for Reyez. Last week, the Toronto native performed "Before Love Came To Kill Us" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Earlier this year, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter also released her debut studio album, Before Love Came To Kill Us. Reyez’s debut album was praised by The New York Times, Variety, Pitchfork, Vibe and Time.

With over 350 million global streams upon release, the debut resulted in a nomination for the 2020 Polaris Music Prize for Best Canadian Album, earning the title of Top Female Debut Album and #2 R&B album of 2020 on release week. 

Watch Reyez sing from the top of Toronto’s CN Tower EdgeWalk below.
