The pre-game performances at Super Bowl LV gave the “Big Game” a lot to live up to.

A pre-recorded video performance by Alicia Keys of “Lift Every Voice And Sing” — widely recognized as the Black National Anthem.

H.E.R. sang “America The Beautiful.” As is the case with nearly every H.E.R. TV performance, she wowed the crowd with her singing and guitar playing.

The unliklely duo of country singer Eric Church and R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan then sang the National Anthem.

Finally. Amanda Gorman — who had a star making appearance at President Biden’s inauguration — performed a poem honoring our frontline workers.
