Pharrell is helping bring in the NFL's 95th season. The "Happy" singer will perform at the 2014 NFL Kickoff Presented by Xbox outside of Seattle's Century Link Field Thursday, September 4, reports the Associated Press.

His pre-game set precedes the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks. 

The hour-long event commemorates the Seahawks' 2013 Super Bowl victory. It also marks the 10th kickoff game to be held at the winning team's home stadium, and the 13th consecutive NFL celebration of its kind. 

Seattle rock band Soundgarden will set it off. "Problem" singer Ariana Grande will belt out the National Anthem.

Skateboard P is racking up big sports performances. He opened last year's NBA All-Stars Game with help from special guests Diddy, Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes

The "2014 NFL Kickoff Presented by Xbox" airs at 7 p.m. EST on NBC, the NFL network, and NFL Mobile for Verizon customers.
