Fergie to sing national anthem at NBA All-Star Game next month

Fergie will perform the American national anthem before the game. Williams, a multi-faceted singer, songwriter, producer and fashion designer, alongside N.E.R.D, which released its fifth studio album, No One Ever Really Dies, last month, will perform a medley of charttopping hits at halftime of the NBA All-Star Game.

The NBA release noted he'll be joined by special guests for an "exciting opening" before introducing the players for the 67th All-Star Game. Canadian rockers Barenaked Ladies will perform the national anthem of their home country. The hip-hop group comprised of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley released their first album in five years in December, titled No One Ever Really Dies, and according to a release sent out by the National Basketball Association, will "perform a medley of chart-topping hits" for those in attendance at Staples Center.

Kevin Hart will open the night.

The comedian will headline the All-Star game's entertainment and be on the stage for the introduction of the teams.
