Carlos Santana performs at On The Green 2016 San Francisco Fest at AT&T Park on Sept. 4, 2016 in San Francisco.

Renowned guitarist and ten-time Grammy Award-winner Carlos Santana will make his return to the NBA Finals stage to perform the national anthem this Sunday night (June 4). 

Joining Santana will be famed bassist Benny Rietveld. The two are slated to perform at the start of Game 2 between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. For the last two years, the San Francisco native has performed in the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena. Train singer Pat Monahan delivered a powerful rendition prior to Thursday night's Game 1, where the Warriors beat the Cavs, 113-91. 

Santana will continue his musical escapades later this month when he launches his U.S. summer tour in Washington. The tour will kick off June 23 and run through August. 

You can catch Santana and Rietveld's performance at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Watch his 2016 performance of the national anthem below.
