Avicii, Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean to perform together at FIFA World Cup

Avicii, Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean will team up at the FIFA World Cup closing ceremony this summer.

The musicians, alongside Alexandre Pires, will perform the song 'Dar um Jeito (We Will Find A Way)' at the event in Rio de Janeiro on July 13.

Veteran guitarist Carlos Santana commented: "It is an honour to take part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and have 'Dar um Jeito (We Will Find A Way)' 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.”

FIFA’s Marketing Director Thierry Weil meanwhile said: “It is great to see another impressive group of artists join the official music programme of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. FIFA and Sony have been working hard in developing an album that brings the sounds of Brazil to life through a variety of creative tracks.

"Santana, Wyclef, Avicii and Alexandre Pires are true musical icons and I am thrilled they will be part of the 2014 FIFA World Cup closing ceremony.”

The official 2014 World Cup song meanwhile is the tune 'We Are One', which features Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte.
