The Super Bowl is one of the biggest events of the year, bringing together football fans from around the world to enjoy a game filled with action and excitement.

Along with the sport, the Super Bowl is also famous for its halftime shows, which feature some of the biggest names in the music industry. This year, the Super Bowl is set to feature an incredible headliner with global superstar Rihanna set to lead the Halftime Show this year. The anticipation is building, and fans can’t wait to see what the 9-time Grammy winner singer has in store for the crowd.

While the Halftime Performance from Rihanna is sure to be the highlight of the game when it comes to the game’s musical performances, it won’t be the only musical performance coming fans’ way during the game! Before the Super Bowl kicks off a trio of performers will take to the stage before the game begins to perform the National Anthem, “America the Beautiful,” and “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

Singers Chris Stapleton and Babyface will respectfully take to the field to perform the National Anthem and “America the Beautiful,” respectively, but who will be performing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at the big game?
