A television talk show host has landed one of the top singing gigs for the Super Bowl, set for Sunday, Feb. 2. Starpulse reports that Queen Latifah will sing "America the Beautiful" at the event, which takes place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
"Queen Latifah, 43, was born in Newark, N.J., and raised in East Orange, so the venue will certainly be particularly special for her," the report notes. "This will be the second time the star has sung the song at the Super Bowl, initially performing in 2010."
Latifah hosts the syndicated daytime show "The Queen Latifah Show."
Opera star Renee Fleming will sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, as we reported previously. The halftime show will include musical acts Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
