Alicia Keys will sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl this year, reports the AP.
The NFL championship game will be played on February 3 in New Orleans. Beyonce will perform at the half time show.
Alicia Keys is adding her voice to the Super Bowl show. The Grammy-winning R&B singer has been lined up to perform the national anthem before the NFL championship game on Feb. 3 in New Orleans, a person familiar with Super Bowl entertainment plans told The Associated Press on Friday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has not yet announced the anthem singer.
The Super Bowl teams will be determined this Sunday, when the San Francisco 49ers play the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship game, and the Baltimore Ravens face the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game.
The NFL said in October that Beyonce will be the star of the halftime show at this year’s Super Bowl. She sang the national anthem at the 2004 NFL title game in her hometown of Houston.
