LOS ANGELES (AP) - November 4, 2009
Major League Baseball says the Bronx-born singer will perform the national anthem at Yankee Stadium before Game Six of the World Series on Wednesday.
Blige is the latest superstar to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" during the championship matchup between the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies. John Legend and Alanis Morissette have also lent their voices to the traditional pre-game performance.
Blige, 38, has won six Grammy awards since her 1992 debut, "What's the 411?"
