Super Bowl LV is right around the corner which means this year’s performance of the national anthem is set. The NFL announced that the 2021 national anthem will be a duet performed by GRAMMY-nominated artists Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church ahead of this year’s Super Bowl matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The national anthem will be preceded by a performance of “America the Beautiful” by GRAMMY-award winning artist H.E.R. Warren “WAWA” Snipe will perform both songs in American Sign Language. Plus, Amanda Gorman will receive poem before Super Bowl LV.
Performances of the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” will take place just before kickoff time which is at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan has twelve total GRAMMY nominations and her debut album Fearless earned seven of those. Country singer Eric Church is a seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner and 10-time GRAMMY nominee. Church’s hit singles include “Some of It,” “Give Me Back My Hometown,” “Springsteen,” and “Drink in My Hand.”
According to OddsShark, the average length of the national anthem has been 1:55 since Super Bowl 40. The last time the Super Bowl was played in Tampa in 2009, Jennifer Hudson sang the anthem for a total of 2:10.
