Aloe Blacc to perform National Anthem and halftime at Game 7


Aloe Blacc, better known as the guy who sang the “I’m the Man” song that was inescapable in Beats by Dre commercials a few years ago, will be prominently featured in Game 7 of the Finals. He’ll not only perform the national anthem before the game, but he’ll also provide the halftime entertainment, the NBA announced Sunday.
