Mary J. Blige Will Kick-Off The World Series With The National Anthem

Show At "Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live" Concert

Mary J. Blige will be singing the national anthem at Game 1 of the 2013 World Series on Wednesday, Oct. 23. when the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals will be taking the field at Fenway Park.

“It is an honor to have the opportunity to perform the National Anthem,” Blige said, “I’ve conducted countless performances across the globe throughout my illustrious career, but performing the anthem at Yankees 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 singer-songwriter has sold more than 50 million records, including eight multiplatinum albums, nine Grammy Awards (plus 29 nominations) and four American Music Awards.

The real question is: Will she be rooting for the Sox or the Cardinals?
