FIFA Announces an All-Star Lineup of Musicians for the Official World Cup Anthem

FIFA and Sony Music Entertainment have announced that Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana will be performing the official 2014 World Cup anthem along with former Fugees singer Wyclef Jean, samba star Alexandre Pires and Swedish DJ Avicii.

The name of the song in Portuguese is Dar um Jeito,which translates to We Will Find A Way in English.

The four musicians will also be performing the anthem during the closing ceremonies on July 13 in Rio de Janeiro after the final game.

The 66-year-old Santana, who played at the famous Woodstock rock festival in America way back in 1969, said, "It is an honour to take part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and have Dar um Jeito selected as the Anthem.

"Along with my brothers, Wyclef, Avicii and Alexandre Pires, we look forward to performing the song in Rio de Janeiro in July and sharing this message of light and hope on the FIFA World Cup stage."
