Grammy award winner Mary J. Blige has been tapped to perform The National Anthem during Major League Baseball’s World Series game this Wednesday.
According to organizers, Blige will perform at Fenway Park just before the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals play.
“It is an honor to have the opportunity to perform the national anthem,” said Blige. “I’ve conducted countless performances across the globe throughout my illustrious career, but performing the anthem at Yankee Stadium during the 2009 World Series was beyond a thrill, and so I’m looking forward to again being a part of baseball’s great history.”
The 2013 MLB World Series airs Wednesday night at 7:30 pm on FOX.
