The NBA announced Thursday that Hudson, 38, will perform a tribute to the late basketball star at the game Sunday at United Center in Chicago.
Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash Jan. 26 in California. Bryant, who was 41, and Gianna were buried at a California cemetery during a private service last week.
Hudson mourned Bryant in an Instagram post the day of his death.
"It's like every time I go to sleep and then wake up somebody is gone! This news Hurts my heart so bad! #kobebryant," she wrote.
The NBA also announced a number of other performers for the All-Star Game. Chaka Khan will perform the U.S. national anthem, while Tenille Arts will sing the Canadian national anthem.
