Estelle at MLS All-Star game

West Ham United will not be the only Londoners taking part in the Major League Soccer All-Star Game on 24 July as singer Estelle will perform in the half-time show.

The R&B star will be singing her international hit American Boy, taken from her second album Shine, during the high-profile game being played at the BMO Field in Toronto, Canada. Geoff Hayes, vice president of special events for Major League Soccer, said: "Estelle is an excellent representation of the kind of artist that is ideal for a Major League Soccer special event. Her chart-topping tracks in Europe, combined with her rising star status in North America, amount to an exciting entertainment buzz and incremental attention."

This is the fifth time the MLS All-Stars, potentially featuring the LA Galaxy and England midfielder David Beckham, have taken on teams from overseas. In the four previous games, Celtic FC, Chelsea FC, Fulham and Mexican outfit CD Guadalajara have all come up short against the finest players from the top league in the United States and Canada.
