ANAHEIM, Calif. – Amber Riley will bring her high school pep to the Major League Baseball All-Star game.

The ‘Glee‘ starlet will sing a set of songs and the national anthem before Tuesday’s edition of the annual midsummer classic held this year at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., baseball officials announced Sunday.

The 24-year-old Riley plays young diva Mercedes Jones on the recently Emmy-nominated ‘Glee,’ which chronicles the musical lives of a group of talented high school outcasts.

Both ‘Glee’ and the All-Star game air on Fox-TV.

The Canadian Tenors will perform the Canadian national anthem before Tuesday’s game, and country-pop hit maker Colbie Caillat will sing God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch.
