Grammy Award winning Mary J. Blige will perform the National Anthem at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving match this week.
The soul diva will perform before the kick-off for the match with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday.
Blige previously performed at Fenway Park prior to Game One of the 2013 World Series. “After hearing Mary perform the National Anthem during the World Series, we could not think of a better singer to invite to our Thanksgiving Day game to deliver anthem,” said Charlotte Anderson, Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer of the Dallas Cowboys. “Her stirring rendition of the anthem on that national stage was moving. With the nation’s football fans focused on AT&T Stadium for our traditional holiday game, we wanted an entertainer that could deliver just that type of performance to kick off what will be a great game.”
The Dallas Cowboys vs Oakland Raiders match will kick off at 3:30pm central US time and broadcast on CBS TV.
