*After belting the national anthem at the Super Bowl in 2008 and for President Barack Obama this week [see photo above], Jordin Sparks will now perform it for baseball fans next week.
The “American Idol” champ will sing the “Star-Spangled Banner” on July 12 at Major League Baseball’s 82nd All-Star game, reports the Associated Press.
The game will be held at the Chase Field in Phoenix, and air live on Fox at 8 p.m. EDT.
MLB’s All-Star week will also feature performances from Cee Lo Green, Jason Aldean, Michelle Branch and five-time All-Star and Latin Grammy nominee, Bernie Williams.
Sparks, Williams, Aldean — along with Nick Jonas, “Glee” actor Chord Overstreet and others — will participate in a celebrity softball game during the week’s festivities.
