'Idol' winner Fantasia to sing anthem
NEW YORK -- Muhammad Ali will help throw out the first pitch during pregame ceremonies at Tuesday's All-Star game.
Ali, accompanied by his 13-year-old son Asaad, will deliver two baseballs to the mound, where two members of the Houston-area Boys & Girls Club will throw out the ceremonial first pitches.
Ali, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, is an alumnus of the Boys & Girls Club of Louisville, Ky.
"American Idol" winner Fantasia will sing the national anthem, while Ruben Studdard, the show's second-season winner, will sing "God Bless America" during the seventh inning stretch.
