Whitney Houston. Mariah Carey. Christina Aguilera. And now Alicia Keys will join the illustrious list of superstars when she sings the national anthem at the Super Bowl next month.
Before the big game gets underway, the “Girl on Fire” will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” in front of millions at Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3, reports the AP. An official announcement has yet to be made by the NFL.
Her “Put It in a Love Song” collaborator Beyoncé will headline the halftime show, which will feature an appearance from her Destiny’s Child bandmates. She previously sang the national anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl in her hometown of Houston.
Alicia is gearing up for her “Set the World on Fire” tour with Miguel, which kicks off on March 7 in Seattle.
