(Edmonton) Friday is Old Skool Night when the Eskimos host the Roughriders. In addition to a surely electrifying game, the night features an all-star entertainment line-up with Edmonton's-own Kreesha Turner singing the national anthem to open the night and legendary rap group Salt-N-Pepa performing at halftime.
Kreesha won a talent contest through The Bounce (91.7 FM), a local radio station, in 2003. Since then, the Juno nominated singer has enjoyed mainstream success. Her single "Bounce with Me" was her first song to enter the charts, followed by "Don't Call Me Baby" which was her first Canadian Top 10 single. This song also became her first number one song on the US Billboard Dance Charts. Her latest album, Tropic Electric, was released in November 2011. Her third single from the album, "Love Again", was released in April 2012.
Salt-N-Pepa entered the hip-hop scene over 25 years ago and have produced several hit songs and won an array of music awards. Last year, Salt-N-Pepa performed a 20-city Legends of Hip-Hop tour to celebrate the 25-year anniversary of the release of Hot, Cool & Vicious, their critically acclaimed multi-platinum selling album.
