Rapper Vanilla Ice is set to perform during half-time at a huge American football showdown in Texas this weekend (15Sep13).

The Ice Ice Baby hitmaker, real name Robert Van Winkle, will headline the set at the game between the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Sunday.

Organisers asked the Texas native to be the main attraction of their Liberty White Out festivities at the home season opener, for which Texans fans are being asked to wear all white.

Van Winkle is featured in a promotional video for the game, while his iconic song Ice Ice Baby plays in the background.
