Chaka Khan and Tenille Arts will sing the US and Canadian national anthems, respectively, and Queen Latifah and Chance's brother Taylor Bennett will also perform over All-Star weekend.

The All-Star Game returns to Chicago, one of the biggest USA cities and, on the other hand, is a showcase for global talent more than ever. Chaka Khan will perform the US national anthem, while Tenille Arts will sing the Canadian national anthem.

NBA All-Star 2020 in Chicago will put the game's global reach on full display, with a record number of worldwide players set to participate.

The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game presented by Ruffles on February 14 and the NBA All-Star Practice & Media Day presented by AT&T on February 15 will take place at Wintrust Arena.

The public beta, meanwhile, will drop only in May, and it'll be more stable than the first developer release. Android Police managed to grab a screenshot of the page before Google reverted the changes.

NBA All-Star 2020 will reach fans in 215 countries and territories via television, computer, mobile phone and tablet in 47 languages. As previously announced, Taylor Bennett will perform at halftime.

Before All-Star team introductions, Grammy victor and Chicago native Common will welcome fans to the city with a narrative about what basketball means to his hometown. The city will also be represented prior to the Rising Stars game when the Chicago Children's Choir sings "The Star-Spangled Banner". The famed skills challenge, three-point contest, and slam-dunk contest will follow, with the action expected to begin at eight in the east and five in the west.

Besides the mentioned tributes, the Los Angeles Lakers veteran (along with his daughter Gianna, who also perished in the crash) will be honored when the All-Star Game participants wear custom-made jerseys and memorial patches. Bryant died tragically January 26 after a helicopter accident that also claimed the life of his daughter Gianna and seven other victims.
