NEW YORK (AP) - Idina Menzel is bringing Broadway to baseball.

The Tony-winning performer will sing the national anthem at the MLB All-Star Game on July 15 in Minneapolis. Menzel will also perform during the pre-game ceremony, including a cover of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young."

The game at Target Field will air on Fox, where country singer Joe Nichols will sing "God Bless America."

MLB All-Star week will also include a Saturday concert by Grammy-winning rockers Imagine Dragons at the TCF Bank Stadium.

A day later, Panic! At the Disco will perform at the All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game at Target Field.

Singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc will hit the stage at the Home Run Derby on July 14. It will air on ESPN.
