Oh say she can sing.
R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan, 33, joined country singer Eric Church, 43, to sing the national anthem at Sunday's 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa, Fla., giving an emotional start to the clash between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs .
Church, dressed in a purple denim jacket, began the hymn by playing on a guitar. He handed the second verse to Sullivan, wearing a classic white suit and crystal headdress before the two ended the emotional performance together.
Sullivan and Church's 2021 Super Bowl Anthem - a popular topic for online bettors - arrived at 2:24 am on numerous counts.
The "Star Spangled Banner" was not the only entertainment to rally the crowds. Prior to the anthem, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter HER, 23, sang "America the Beautiful" while playing on a silver electric guitar.
And before the festivities officially began, Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys, 40, sang a thoughtful tribute to black lives in a pre-recorded segment. The song, "Lift Every Voice and Sing," is often referred to as "Black National Anthem" and was written by NAACP frontman James Weldon Johnson.
