Jewel to sing national anthem at Indy 500  
Jewel
Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jewel will perform the national anthem before the start of the 2010 Indianapolis 500.

Jewel has sold 27 million albums worldwide since her smash debut in 1995, "Pieces of You," which went platinum 12 times. She has won an American Music Award and an MTV Video Music Award and has been nominated twice for a Grammy Award.

Her ninth studio album, "Sweet and Wild," is set for release June 8 on the
Valory label.

"We're pleased to welcome Jewel to the Indianapolis 500 to sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner,'" said Jeff Belskus, president and chief executive officer of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corp. "We pay honor to our veterans throughout pre-race ceremonies at the '500,' so Jewel is an ideal choice to sing our national anthem due to her continued support of U.S. military personnel." Jewel has performed at USO concerts for American service personnel around the world. The 2010 Indianapolis 500 is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. (ET) Sunday, May 30 and will be broadcast live on ABC and the IMS Radio Network.
