R Kelly is to perform the official World Cup anthem at the FIFA opening ceremony.
The RnB singer will join forces with Soweto Spiritual Singers to sing Sign Of A Victory on June 11 at the Johannesburg Soccer City Stadium.
"I feel blessed that Sign Of A Victory was selected to be part of the 2010 FIFA World Cup - the FIFA World Cup is an event that brings the world together and inspires us to be and do the best we can, it's this uplifting feeling that I tried to capture in the song," he said.
R Kelly - real name Robert Kelly - said it is a "great honour" to perform with the Soweto Spiritual Singers.
"They represent the best of South Africa and I'm proud to work with such a talented group," he added.
