Sevyn Streeter Gets Apology from 76ers After Being Denied National Anthem Performance
The R&B singer was told two minutes before her scheduled performance that she was not allowed to sing and instead, one of the team’s dancers performed instead.
“We are sorry that this happened,” the team said in a statement (via Huffington Post). “After receiving feedback from our players, basketball operations staff and ownership group, we believe that the wrong decision was made, and Sevyn should have been welcome to sing. We apologize to her.”
