NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Grammy-winning R&B singer Fantasia has joined the growing list of musical acts set to perform for New Orleans Super Bowl weekend.

Sherri Shepherd, host of ABC's "The View," and Grammy-winning gospel musician Kirk Franklin, are organizing a gospel celebration with performances by Fantasia, Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Winans and New Orleans' Bishop Paul S. Morton.

The NFL-sanctioned event is in its 14th year and will be held at the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans on Friday, Feb. 1.

The show also will include a performance by this year's NFL "Players' Choice" hip-hop Christian artist Lecrae, as well as the NFL Players Choir made up of about 40 current and former players.

The show will be taped before a live audience and syndicated for broadcast. Ticket prices start at $40.
