It appears as though we’ll get to watch some great talent at this year’s Super Bowl. Alicia Keys has just been added to show to sing the National Anthem.
The Grammy-winning R&B singer has been lined up to perform the national anthem before the NFL championship game on Feb. 3 in New Orleans, a person familiar with Super Bowl entertainmentplans told The Associated Press on Friday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not yet announced the anthem singer.
Keys, who turns 32 next week, released her fifth studio album, “Girl on Fire,” late last year.
The Super Bowl teams will be determined this Sunday, when the San Francisco 49ers play the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship game, and the Baltimore Ravens face the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game.
The NFL said in October that Beyonce will be the star of the halftime show at this year’s Super Bowl. She sang the national anthem at the 2004 NFL title game in her hometown of Houston.
