Emotions ran high as Jennifer Hudson joined students from Sandy Hook Elementary School for a powerful performance of “America the Beautiful” moments before kickoff at Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday. Looking elegant in a black top and white pencil skirt, the Oscar winner showed her stars and stripes as she belted out the patriotic tune.
“Such a privilege to be performing w the Sandy Hook elementary chorus at the #SuperBowl today,” tweeted J-Hud.
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.
