The 2021 Super Bowl has found its national anthem singers! The NFL announced on Tuesday that Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7. The pair follows Demi Lovato, who sang the national anthem at the 2020 game.
“The Super Bowl wasn’t even a tangible goal for me, so I never even dreamed it!!” Sullivan wrote on her Instagram Story in response to the news. “O but God He will pour out a blessing for u, that u have not room enough to receive you. SMH I’ll shout RT now. Grateful is all I can say.”
The NFL also announced that H.E.R. will sing “America the Beautiful” before kickoff. Yolanda Adams performed the song in 2020.
Meanwhile, Warren “Wawa” Snipe will perform both the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” in sign language on Super Bowl Sunday.
