Montreal Canadiens search for next great anthem singer

Last playoff season, Montreal Canadiens fans were wowed by the singing power of Ginette Reno... and now the team is asking members of the public if they have what it takes to fill her shoes.  

Hundreds of Habs fans lined up at the Bell Centre this morning for a chance to be the next national anthem singer.

Hopefuls auditioned by performing both the Canadian and American anthems — a capella — in front of a panel of judges.

For those who think they have the personality, but maybe not the voice, the Habs will hold auditions Wednesday for an in-game host.
