American R&B singer Monica sang the National Anthem prior to the start of Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada.
Monica apparently dropped the “Brown” from her stage name after filing for divorce from estranged husband, Shannon, earlier this year. The 39-year-old mother-of-3 cited “irreconcilable differences” for the divorce action.
Monica and Shannon, 33, share a daughter together, Laiyah Shannon Brown.
Monday night’s game marked the return of Warriors superstar Kevin Durant, who was out for 5 weeks with a calf injury.
The Warriors face elimination tonight as Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors hold the series lead 3-1.
