Idol Winner David Cook Lines Up Appearances
Two days later, the vibe in Los Angeles shifts from rock to soul as Grammy Award-winning smooth jazz and R&B legend Jeffrey Osborne performs the National Anthem at Game 4 on Thursday, June 12.
All National Anthem performances during the best-of-seven series will be televised live on ABC in the U.S. and to a worldwide audience in more than 200 countries and territories beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET.
Cook's live performance continues the tradition of former Idol winners singing the National Anthem at the NBA Finals including Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, and Jordin Sparks.
