Selena Gomez is giving back for Thanksgiving by performing at the Dallas Cowboys halftime show to benefit the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign.

"Dallas is my hometown, and to be invited to perform on behalf of The Salvation Army is such a great honor," said Gomez in a statement. "Giving back is so important, and I am looking forward to kicking off the iconic Red Kettle Campaign and getting those bells ringing across the nation to help families and children in need."

"We are thrilled to have Selena kick off the Red Kettle Campaign and be a part of this time-honored tradition," said Charlotte Jones Anderson, Cowboys executive vice president and chief brand officer said. "Her amazing performance, a national stage and huge, enthusiastic fan base will be a powerful start to Red Kettle 2013."

"The Salvation Army touches so many lives and provides nourishment, shelter and support for children and families in the most need,” said Anderson continued. "Together with Selena, we celebrate the important impact of the Salvation Army's work in doing the most good."

Ironically, the Salvation Army has a bit of a homophobic streak, so perhaps if Russia knew that before, they would have let Gomez perform there! In any case, as for what Selenators could expect for her performance? "You should expect something new with a twist of old. We had to make it special for my hometown!"
