The NBA is teaming up with Normani. The league has enlisted the singer to sing the theme song, “Ballin’ in a Christmas Wonderland,” an update of the classic holiday song “Winter Wonderland”  for their commercial,  advertising its highly anticipated five-game slate that is scheduled to air on Christmas Day.

“NBA Christmas greetings… Ballin’ in a Christmas wonderland… Matchups are tight. Games all day and night. Ballin’ in a Christmas wonderland,” Normani sings in the ad that opens up with a play from Lebron James.

The NBA lineup airs at 12 PM ET on Wednesday, December 25 on ABC and ESPN.
