Super Bowl LV is just around the corner which means that this year’s performance of the national anthem has ended. The NFL announced that the 2021 national anthem will be a duet by GRAMMY nominated artists Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church ahead of this year’s Super Bowl matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The national anthem will be preceded by a performance of “America the Beautiful” by GRAMMY-award-winning artist HER Warren “WAWA” Snipe, who will perform both songs in American sign language.
Both performances will take place on Sunday, February 7th at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida just before kick-off at 6:30 p.m. ET.
R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan has a total of twelve GRAMMY nominations and her debut album Fearless deserves seven of them. Country singer Eric Church is a seven-time ACM Award winner, a four-time CMA Award winner and a ten-time GRAMMY nominee. Church’s hit singles include “Some of It”, “Give Me Back My Hometown”, “Springsteen” and “Drink in My Hand”.
Below is a list of singers who sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl over the past decade after Whitney Houston performed the national anthem in 1991.
