Fresh off her stirring rendition of the "The Star Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XLVII, Grammy Award-winning artist Alicia Keys will headline the halftime show at the 2013 NBA All-Star Game in Houston on Feb. 17.
Keys, a 14-time Grammy winner, will perform several of her hits as part of the All-Star Game "Entertainment Series presented by Sean John at Macy's." This series will include numerous other performances over the course of the weekend. Earlier in the night, NE-YO will welcome the All-Star participants to the court with a performance of some of his hits, which will then be followed by nine-time Grammy Award-winning artist John Legend singing the U.S. National Anthem. Gloria Reuben, who currently stars in the film "Lincoln," will sing the Canadian National Anthem.
On Saturday night, Nick Cannon, not the usual TNT crew, will be hosting the festivities that include the Skills Challenge, the Three-Point Contest and the Slam Dunk Contest. The evening will feature performances from Ellie Goulding, Phillip Phillips and the recently reunited Fall Out Boy. RaVaughn will perform the U.S National Anthem and Michelle Peavy will sing the Canadian National Anthem.
