This year’s Super Bowl, set to be televised Feb. 3 by CBS from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, will open with a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” by Gladys Knight, according to media reports.

“The seven-time Grammy Award-winner says she’s proud to use her voice to ‘unite and represent our country’ in her hometown of Atlanta,” The New York Post’s Page Six reports.

Knight, 74, known for a string of hits including “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “That’s What Friends Are For,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 along with her group the Pips.

As we reported earlier this week, Maroon 5 will headline the halftime show, with Big Boi and Travis Scott also on the bill.
