She is set to take the stage after R'n'B crooners and first execute their assigned tasks, with the latter welcoming the players with a string of his hits as they enter the court, and the former handling the national anthem singing chores.

The all-star game is just a part of the exciting three-day NBA All-Star weekend that will merge sports and pop music for the enjoyment of millions of basketball fans. Other performances lined-up for the big weekend of events are singer-songwriter , "" winner and pop punk band , who will dish out their first live television performance in three years during the star-studded event.
