Timbaland Performing At McDonald’s All American High School Basketball Game
In order to promote his new album, Shock Value, Timbaland will perform two new songs at tonight’s McDonald’s All American High School basketball game. The event takes place at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky at 8 PM and will also air on ESPN. “In my line of work, I get to partner with the world’s top artists, but I’m particularly proud to work with the McDonald’s All American Games, which showcases the best basketball talent in the U.S.,” Timbaland says. The annual McDonald’s All American Game also raises funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. This year’s proceeds will go towards the Ronald McDonald House of Kentuckiana. “With Timbaland’s involvement in the McDonald’s All American Game, it pairs the best of musical entertainment with the best of high school basketball,” says Tara Hayes of McDonald’s U.S. Communications. After Timbo performs tonight, he will then travel to Detroit’s Ford Field on Sunday to perform at WWE’s Wrestlemania 23. We’ll see if this hectic touring schedule pays off for Timbaland when he releases Shock Value on April 3.
