Beyoncé. Alicia Keys. And now Jennifer Hudson is the latest diva to join the lineup for Sunday’s Super Bowl festivities. The Oscar winner will perform “America the Beautiful” with students from Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Fresh off her performance at President Obama’s Inaugural Ball, J-Hud will sing the patriotic tune with 26 students from Sandy Hook during the Super Bowl XLVII pre-game show on Sunday (via USA Today).
The performance comes a little more than a month after 26 children and faculty members were killed in the tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
“I’m blessed & honored to be singing ‘America The Beautiful’ with Sandy Hook elementary school chorus at the Super Bowl Sunday,” tweeted J-Hud.
In addition to Hudson, Alicia Keys will sing the National Anthem and Beyoncé will headline the halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
