Everitt: Capri Everitt and Tickets

everitt: Capri Everitt planned to give the tickets away to fans based on their singing of O Canada outside Rogers Arena tomorrow night before show time, according to Toronto Star. But then she was given 80 tickets to give away. Capri Everitt had planned to award two tickets to the best Canadian fans based on their performance of the national anthem with her outside Rogers Arena on Friday night. THE CANADIAN PRESS Everitt says she earned the money for the tickets by busking in downtown Vancouver and wanted to pass them on to others as part of a pre-show performance to welcome the American entertainer. Everitt says everyone who's already been given a ticket will join her to sing O Canada before they enter the arena, and their own little show will include the flags of 80 countries where she has travelled with her family. The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade heard about her idea and donated 80 tickets, and the teen has given them to various multicultural societies so kids they serve can have a chance to see DeGeneres.
