Skye could likely feel the pressure such a gesture brings, but she knew it was the right thing to do. Posting the performance on Instagram, Skye admitted:
“Got a bit shaky at the end…was pretty uneasy about singing the anthem and probably won’t ever be invited to sing it again. But I had to take a knee for the opening game in my city and let my voice be heard. We will not be silenced,” adding the #blacklivesmatter hashtag in solidarity with the movement.
