TORONTO — Pop-punk singer Willow will perform at a pre-game show before Sunday's NHL Heritage Classic at Hamilton's Tim Hortons field.

Willow broke onto the scene in 2010 with her R&B song "Whip My Hair," which reached No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and reached No. 2 in the UK.

She has released three albums, shifting to indie rock and punk for her 2021 release "Lately I Feel Everything." The album reached Top 5 on Billboard’s alternative albums chart.

Willow, the daughter of actors and musicians Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, is well-known on social media service TikTok, which will livestream the pre-game concert before the game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres.

The NHL announced Monday that Canadian Grammy Award-winner Alessia Cara will perform during the first intermission of the Heritage Classic.
