JOSS STONE TO PERFORM PRE-GAME SHOW AT WEMBLEY
Joss Stone, one of Britain’s leading female vocalists, will perform the pre-game show at the NFL’s third International Series game at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, November 9 when the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Dallas Cowboys.
A double BRIT Award winner and Grammy Award winner, Joss will perform before the 6:00 p.m. kickoff of the eleventh NFL regular-season game to be played in London since the International Series began in 2007.
We advise fans to take their seats before 5:30 p.m. in order to watch the pre-game show.
Her pregame show will conclude with “No Man’s Land”, the official Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal single, which she has recorded with guitarist Jeff Beck. The performance will highlight the NFL’s partnership with the Royal British Legion for Remembrance, which will also see the Legion’s iconic Poppy logo on the players’ uniforms and helmets and various fund-raising activities around the game on behalf of the Poppy Appeal.
“We are very excited that Joss Stone will be performing before the final game of our Wembley season,” said Alistair Kirkwood, Managing Director of NFLUK. “Her pregame show will be one of the highlights of a very special day and I am sure that the performance of ‘No Man’s Land’ will be a memorable and poignant moment for fans in the stadium and those watching at home.”
Joss Stone, owner of one of most distinctive voices in British music, rose to fame in 2003 with the multi-platinum album “The Soul Sessions”. Following the 2004 release of “Mind, Body and Soul” she won the 2005 BRIT Awards for Best Female Vocal Artist and Best Urban Act. Having previously been nominated three times, she won her first Grammy Award in 2007 for Best R&B Performance by Vocal Duo or Group for “Family Affair” with John Legend and Van Hunt.
She currently has six album releases to her name, including four consecutive top 10 entries on the Billboard 200 in the US, with a seventh due to be released next spring.
