Before the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs begin the 2016 World Series at Progressive Field on Tuesday night, rising pop star Rachel Platten will belt out the national anthem.

Platten, 35, is perhaps best known for her 2015 worldwide hit, “Fight Song,” which rose to No. 6 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in August 2015 and earned her the iHeartRadio Music Award for Best Lyrics. Her popularity continued to grow since then, and her first major studio (Columbia Records) album, Wildfire, hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in early 2016.

Though she’s a relatively new star, Platten certainly isn’t a stranger to this particular kind of spotlight. In July, she sang the national anthem before the MLB All-Star Game:

Game 1 of the World Series is set to begin at 8 p.m. ET, so Platten will perform sometime a little before that. The game will be broadcast on Fox in the United States, and on Sportsnet in Canada.
