The Summer Olympics are getting closer, with two women set to perform at the games.
Jada Rose, who has played the lead singer in the band the Red Lips since 2000, and Jade Littles, a founding member of the band The Flaming Lips, have announced their participation in the games with the help of the nonprofit organization, the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The two women will appear at the opening ceremony in Rio de Janeiro on July 4.
“I’m super excited for the Olympics,” Rose told ABC News.
“I’ve been wanting to come here for a long time, so it’s really great to finally be able to come and do it with these two amazing artists.”
The two artists who have collaborated with Rose in the past are Littels longtime friend and fellow Lips member Jade Little, who was born in Miami, and the talented and talented friend of the Red Bands’ drummer, Jaden Smith, who will also be in attendance at the Games.
“We just really wanted to do something that’s really meaningful for the city and for the women who’ve been so dedicated to doing this and the women that have been working to make it happen,” Little said.
“Jade and Jade are really inspiring people, and they’re really good at doing what they do.
We just want to make sure that people can connect with them.”
In a statement released to ABC News, IOC President Thomas Bach said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Jada and Jade for their very special event and to celebrate the Olympic spirit that we all strive to inspire.”
In 2018, Rose and Littly won a Grammy for Best Country Album and a Tony Award for Best Duo/Group Performance.
The women were named as the 2018 Olympic Medalists in a ceremony that will be broadcast live on NBC and CBS, with Rose, Littlies bandmate Jaden, singer Littlies sister and longtime friend of Jaden and producer J.J. Holmquist in attendance.
Rose will be the first African American to represent the United States in the Summer Games, while Littlis, who is African American, will be her first international performance.
Rose, Lettles, Holmquin and Smith are scheduled to appear in a live broadcast of the games on Sunday, July 4, at 6 p.m.
ET on NBC.
The two artists have collaborated on the band’s debut album, “Jaden,” and the duo will perform at their first Summer Olympics concert, the Red & Blue Summer Olympics 2018, at a private, non-profit concert in Rio on July 1.
