Keri Hilson to Perform National Anthem at Fenway Park’s Opening Night

Two-time Grammy nominee Keri Hilson will perform the national anthem at Fenway Park on Sunday night, before the Red Sox host the Yankees in Major League Baseball's season opener.

Hilson won't be the only star, though, as two F-16 fighter jets will provide a flyover. The Green Mountain Boys are from the 158th Fighter Wing of the Vermont Air National Guard. The flyover will take place before the anthem, due to aviation safety regulations which state the flyover must take place "before the end of civil twilight."

Hilson's 2009 album "In A Perfect World" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album Charts and No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200.

The Red Sox have recommended that fans should be in their seats on Sunday by 7:30 p.m. in order to catch the pregame festivities.
