Tony Award winner Idina Menzel, who can currently be seen at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in the Broadway production of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey's musical If/Then, will take part in the 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which airs July 15 on Fox.

Menzel is set to sing the U.S. National Anthem, as well as Bob Dylan's "Forever Young," in a ceremony that will honor 30 "All-Star Teachers" from around the country before the game starts at 8pm at Target Field in Minneapolis. The previously scheduled July 15 performance of If/Then at the Richard Rodgers Theatre has been canceled to accommodate Menzel's schedule.

Menzel won a Tony for her performance as Elphaba in the original Broadway company of Wicked. She starred as Maureen in Jonathan Larson's Rent, Elsa in the hit Disney film Frozen, and Shelby Corcoran on TV's Glee. Her solo albums include I Stand, Here, and Still I Can't Be Still.
