"It will be by the end of the year!" Jessica Simpson confidently told "Extra" about her wedding date. The singer, engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson, said she is still working on her dress for the big day.

"I think every bride wants to design her own dress or at least have a part in it. It won't be like a Jessica Simpson Collection dress," she explained.

Simpson, who was in Denver on Thursday, took part in honoring Colorado's military families with First Lady Michelle Obama. Jessica sang at Coors Field in a special performance paying tribute to America's soldiers and revealed she was caught off guard when she was asked to sing. "When I got the call from Mrs. Obama, I was pretty shocked. It was like, did she get the wrong number?"
