On Wednesday, it was announced that five-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and pianist John Legend will headline the 2009 NBA All-Star Game Halftime Show on Sunday, Feb. 15 at US Airways Center.

The artist will perform a special rendition of his inspirational song, “If You’re Out There” and will be joined on-stage by Latin rock star, Juanes. The performance will highlight the NBA Cares Program, the league’s social responsibility initiative.

In 2007, Legend performed at the Steve Nash Celebrity Roast in Scottsdale, Arizona and Nash said he’s definitely looking forward to seeing another live performance from the entertainer.

“John is obviously an amazing singer, songwriter, performer and person,” Nash said. “He’s always lent himself to humanity and has been great as a philanthropist helping people all over the world.” 

Other notable performers currently scheduled to make appearances throughout All-Star Weekend include the star of Disney’s Emmy Award-winning High School Musical, Corbin Bleu, and chart-topping singer/guitarist Kevin Rudolf.
