Ariana Grande To Sing At Seattle Seahawks Home Opener

Ariana Grande has signed on to sing the National Anthem before the Seattle Seahawks opening home game on September 4. The pop star will hit the field as part of the NFL's 2014 Kickoff Celebration and the pregame festivities will air live at 7:30 pm as part of NBC's Football Night in America coverage.

The NFL Network will also broadcast the festivities live and they will be streaming via Verizon's NFL mobile app. The pregame event will also feature a performance by Pharrell Williams and hometown rockers Soundgarden, both of whom will perform outside the stadium before the game.

Grande also made headlines earlier this month when she debuted a 15-second snippet of "Love Me Harder," a cut from her upcoming sophomore album, My Everything, featuring a spot from the Weeknd. Ariana shot an iPhone vid of the song playing and posted it to Instagram.

"love me harder snippetttt (as per your request) . . . 20 days til the new album," she captioned the post.
