Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar and Janelle Monae among NBA All-Star performers
NEW YORK (AP) — Before he sings at the Oscars, Pharrell Williams will perform at the NBA All-Star Game.
NBA announced Thursday that the producer-rapper-singer will perform Feb. 16 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. Williams will open the game and perform during the player introductions with surprise guests.
Recent Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. will sing the national anthem and also perform during the halftime show. Folk-rock singer Serena Ryder will sing the Canadian national anthem.
The All-Star game will air live on TNT. Kendrick Lamar will perform before the slam dunk contest a day before the big game.
