Anita Baker, who's done many a National Anthem for her home town Detroit Pistons, has been tapped to do the honors for game four of the NBA Finals on Thursday, June 10, in Boston between the Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Baker's performance will be aired live during the ABC (WXYZ, Channel 7 in Detroit) telecast of the game.

Baker is in the midst of recording her first album since 2004, which she plans to release this fall. George Duke and Nathan East are among the producers, and she's teamed with rapper Snoop Dogg on what she describes as a "big, lush" rendition of Curtis Mayfield's "Give You My Love."

Baker performs plays her annual summer show on Aug. 28 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre.
