Okanagan singer competes for chance of a lifetime


Sarah Bee has held on to a single dream since she was three-years-old.

“I would run around in my little Trevor Linden jersey and sing the Canadian anthem and that’s the first thing I wanted to be. I came close at a scout game but not quite there, so I want to get it this time.”

She now has a chance to sing the national anthem at a Vancouver Canucks game — they are accepting audition reels. There will be eight finalists that viewers can vote for on Instagram for the winning spot.

The Okanagan singer is determined to take the win.

Her film crew, Keith Low of Casper Styles Media, is putting her unique punk rock personality front and centre.

“She already has a very different edge, to begin with,” said Low.

“She represents a different demographic of people that aren’t the traditional classically trained artists. She comes from a different background but that’s a driving force.”

Bee was the frontman of Crowd the Joanna for seven years and has a solo project called Sarah Bee Music. Her raspy voice is her signature.

Now all that’s left to do is wait until the top eight are announced and the voting begins ahead of the April 17 home game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
