Jennifer Hudson to perform a tribute to the legend, Kobe Bryant

Jennifer Hudson will perform a special tribute to the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant at Sunday's NBA All-Star game.

The National Basketball Association made the announcement Thursday.

The game takes place in Chicago -- and celebrity natives of that city, including Hudson, are the scheduled entertainment for the night.

The Grammy award-winning singer will open the night ahead of player introductions with the tribute.

Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, and Quavo will perform a half-time show.

People magazine reports that the format of the game itself will also be reworked to honor Bryant.

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter died along with seven others last month in a helicopter crash.
