( Timbaland has signed on to perform live at McDonald’s 30th Anniversary All-American High School Boys’ Basketball Games half-time event.

The celebrated b-ball tournament will kick off at 8pm on Wed. Mar. 28 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY.

“With Timbaland’s involvement in the McDonald’s All American Games, it pairs the best of musical entertainment with the best of high school basketball,”
Tara Hayes, a spokeswoman for McDonald’s U.S. Communications said.

Timbaland will perform two songs, including his latest single “Give it to Me,” which features Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake.

The single is featured on his upcoming solo release Timbaland Presents Shock Value dropping in stores Apr. 3.

“In my line of work, I get to partner with the world’s top artists, but I’m particularly proud to work with the McDonald’s All American Games, which showcases the best basketball talent in the U.S.,” Timbaland said.

McDonald’s All American Games was first designed to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities, McDonald’s non-profit organization that gives back
to families and children in struggling communities.

To date, the McDonald’s All American Games have raised more than $5 million for RMHC and its local chapters.

A portion of the proceeds from the 2007 games will go to RMHC of Kentucky.

Tickets to both boys’ and girls’ games are available through Ticketmaster.

The Boys’ game will air live in ESPN.
