Gladys Knight Sings the National Anthem at Super Bowl 2019: Watch
Prior to the Super Bowl LIII kickoff, R&B duo Chloe x Halle delivered a pristine rendition of “America the Beautiful” in their hometown of Atlanta on Sunday night (Feb. 3).
Matching in all-black, letting their falsettos ring out and clasping hands at the end, the sisters preceded Gladys Knight, who sang the national anthem at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi are scheduled to perform during halftime.
Next Sunday, Chloe x Halle will compete for best new artist at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, along with best urban contemporary album for their 2018 debutThe Kids Are Alright. The full-length was released on Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment label after the superstar discovered the duo on YouTube.
Leslie Odom Jr. performed “America the Beautiful” at last year’s Super Bowl, preceding an Eagles-Patriots showdown. The Pats have returned to this year’s big game to take on the Los Angeles Rams.
