International pop star Jencarlos to sing anthem at 2017 MLS All-Star Game

You may first recognize international performer Jencarlos Canela from his turn as a star in telenovelas and movies, most recently in FOX's music special The Passion. But when he's not flexing his acting muscles or leading-man good looks, the Miami-born artist has also nursed a healthy musical career, too.

Both his 2015 single "Bajito" and his 2016 song "Baby" lit up crossover pop charts around the world, and a new single, "Dure Dure," featuring Don Omar, is due out July 28.

That's just a few days before he'll also sing the national anthem at the 2017 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target, on Wednesday, August 2, at Soldier Field in Chicago (8:30 pm ET, FS1, Univision, TSN, TVA Sports). That's when the MLS All-Stars will take on Spanish titans Real Madrid. 

Canela will kick off the day's festivities, and there are still tickets to catch it all. The best way to guarantee your ticket to the 2017 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target against Real Madrid is to contact the Chicago Fire at 888-MLS-Fire or For the ultimate fan experience visit for VIP ticket package details.
