Canadian rapper Drake to perform at Sunday's NHL all-star game in Ottawa

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Canadian rapper Drake headlines the list of performers for this weekend's NHL all-star game.

The two-time Juno Award winner from Toronto will perform during the second intermission of Sunday's game at Scotiabank Place.

Drake joins an entertainment lineup that includes singer and rapper Outasight and Javier Colon, the winner of the inaugural season of NBC's "The Voice."

Colon will sing the U.S. national anthem, while longtime Ottawa Senators anthem singer Lyndon Slewidge will sing "O Canada."

Drake is currently up for three 2012 Grammy Awards. He released his second studio album "Take Care" in November and it debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 1.

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
