Brett Kissel has had an eventful couple of days.

Sunday the Canadian country music singer found himself in the middle of a viral moment when his mic cut out as he began to sing the Star-Spangled Banner. The crowd at Rogers Place picked up the slack.

Just two days later, his wife Cecilia gave birth to Aria Cecilia Kissel, their second daughter.

Thankfully, Kissel's next attempt to sing the anthems went off without a hitch and he went home to have a very normal night with his family.
