Aguilera to sing national anthem - again
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Is Christina Aguilera a good luck charm? The Los Angeles Lakers are hoping so.
Aguilera has been chosen to sing the national anthem for the deciding Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
The Lakers were down 3-2 when Aguilera sang before Tuesday's game at the Staples Center.
Meanwhile, police and city officials say they have a plan in place for Thursday's game to stop any would-be troublemakers. L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is encouraging Angelenos to stay home if they can.
"If you don't have a ticket for Game 7, we encourage you to enjoy this time with family and friends," said Villaraigosa. "Save money, save gas, by celebrating at or near your home."
