Idina Menzel will Sing the National Anthem Prior to MLB All-Star Game

Idina Menzel is going to sing the National Anthem of the United States at the pre-game ceremony prior to the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.

Menzel will also conduct a special on-field performance at the pre-game ceremony that will be held to honor the 30 winners in the "Target presents PEOPLE All-Star Teachers" program.

This program will "celebrate the remarkable current and retired teachers who make an impact on the lives of their students and communities," says MLB. Winners of this program will be recognized on-field with the 2014 MLB All-Star players and managers. 

The Minnesota Orchestra Brass Quintet will sing the Canadian Anthem while Joe Nichols will sing God Bless America as a part of the All-Star Game. 

This pre-game ceremony featuring Tony Award winning singer Idina Menzel will be aired on July 15th on FOX. FOX will start covering the All-Star Game at 7:30 p.m. ET. Menzel will also perform the 11-time Grammy-Award winner Bob Dylan's classic song "Forever Young," before singing the National Anthem.

Meanwhile singer and songwriter, Aloe Blacc will also sing at the Budweiser's MLB All-Star Musical Performance on-field prior to the Gillette Home Run Derby which will be aired on July 14th on ESPN.

Blacc will also perform at the MLB All-Star Gala.

Idina Menzel is an iconic artist who has worked on stage, TV, films and music. Her latest song "Let It Go" for Disney's Oscar-winning film Frozen is a big hit. And it won an Oscar too. And she also voiced the character of Elsa in the film.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
