NFL Reveals Who Will Sing National Anthem at Super Bowl TVWeek
The lineup for the Super Bowl, set for Feb. 3 in New Orleans, is falling into place. The two teams will be the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, following victories Sunday in the conference championship games. And the singer of the National Anthem will be Alicia Keys, the NFL has announced.
Super Bowl XLVII will be televised live by CBS.
Keys, a multiple Grammy winner, will be singing at the Super Bowl for the third time, more than anyone else, the league announced. Keys follows in the footsteps of other singing stars who have performed the National Anthem at the big game, including Kelly Clarkson, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick Jr., Garth Brooks, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Jewel, Cher, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey and the Dixie Chicks.
At the 2005 Super Bowl in Jacksonville, Keys sang "America the Beautiful," and in 2008 in Arizona, as part of the pregame entertainment, she did a song from her album "Girl on Fire."
Beyonce is slated to headline the 2013 Super Bowl half-time entertainment.
