The Roots To Play Live Musical For NBA All-Star Game

The Roots

(Radio.com) The Roots have planned more than just a live set for the NBA All-Star Game: They've composed a brand new musical and assembled an A-list roster of talent from music, stage and film.

The Evolution of Greatness will tell the story of NBA stars through song, featuring Hamilton's Daveed Diggs, Creed's Michael B. Jordan, DJ Jazzy Jeff and hip-hop legend Darryl "DMC" McDaniels.

The performance will take place before the game starts. The Evolution of Greatness follows the NBA from its earliest beginnings to the mammoth cultural institution it is today. Read more here.
