Ten-time Grammy Award–winning artist John Legend will perform at halftime of the 66th NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. The game will take place Sunday, February 19 at Smoothie King Centre.

Legend, who released his fifth studio album Darkness and Light on December 2, will perform a compilation of his newest and greatest hits.

The game was previously scheduled to be held in Charlotte, but was pulled in protest of the so-called "bathroom bill." All-Star Game coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET on TNT
