Broadway singer and actress Idina Menzel has been tapped to sing the national anthem at the upcoming MLB All-Star Game.
In addition to singing the national anthem, the Tony-winning singer is set to also perform Bob Dylan's song "Forever Young" at the pre-game ceremony, according to The Associated Press.
The game, which will be aired on Fox, is on July 15 and will be played at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Several other musicians will be performing during MLB All-Star week, including Joe Nichols, who was chosen to sing "God Bless America." Ahead of the All-Star Game, on July 14, Aloe Blacc is scheduled to perform at the Home Run Derby.
On July 19, Imagine Dragons will hold a concert at the TCF Bank Stadium and then on Sunday Panic! At the Disco will play at Target Field during the All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game.
Menzel's Broadway musical If/Then released an original cast recording in early June and set a new Billboard 200 record for a cast album. The album debuted at the 19th spot on the chart for the week ending June 8, which is the highest since the 1996 release of Rent. She also was featured on that cast recording.
