Jennifer Hudson’s year is off to a fabulous start. The Jennifer Hudson Show just celebrated its 250th episode, its been renewed for a third season and her relationship with Common, which they made official on her show, is flourishing. It appears as though her life currently revolves around her daytime talk show, but she’s making time to headline NBA All-Star 2024 weekend in Indianapolis where the NBA’s beasts of the East and best of the West will play.
JHud has been booked to perform the halftime show at the 73rd NBA All-Star Game, which will be played on Sunday, February 18th at Gainbridge Fieldhouse, the home of the Indiana Pacers, and broadcast on TNT and around the world. She sings every now and then on her show, but Jennifer is really looking forward to blowing the roof off the arena as she’s known to do.
“So honored and excited to be performing at halftime of the 2024 NBA All-Star Game in Indy!” the EGOT shared on her socials. Hudson is the weekend’s headliner, but the rest of the entertainment lineup is just as impressive and features a few other award winners.
It should come as no surprise that the person in charge of making all of the music magic happen is none other than Adam Blackstone. The Emmy Award winner has been enlisted as the NBA All-Star 2024 Musical Director.
Indianapolis native and living legend Babyface, who collected his 13th GRAMMY Award this past weekend, has been tapped to sing the U.S. national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game. Highly-decorated, Diamond-certified rapper Lil Wayne will also perform ahead of the basketball game.
