Chart-topping singer/songwriter John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting, platinum recording artist and actress Jordin Sparks and the USC Trojan Marching Band will join legendary rockers KISS as featured performers at the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series™ outdoor NHL game at Dodger Stadium between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Saturday, Jan. 25, the National Hockey League announced today. The 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series™ game in Los Angeles will be broadcast live on NBCSN in the U.S. and on CBC and RDS2 in Canada.
Sparks, one of the youngest American Idol winner in history and an avid sports fan, will sing the U.S. national anthem while Ondrasik, a lifelong Kings fan, will perform during the second intermission of the first ever NHL outdoor game in California. As the Kings and the Ducks make their way to the ice, members of the USC Trojan Marching Band, under the direction of Dr. Arthur C. Bartner, will provide musical accompaniment. As previously announced, KISS, 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, will rock Dodger Stadium with special performances pre-game and during the first intermission.
The musical performances will take place on two stages on the field. One stage will feature a special design created by Los Angeles art legend Mister Cartoon with the help from his star pupils at Para Los Niños, a local non-profit organization providing high-quality education, family support services and community engagement programs to 7,500 children and families each year.
