NEW YORK – Football fans already know the halftime act for Super Bowl LVII, and on Tuesday they found out the rest of the lineup.
The NFL announced their pregame entertainers for the contest that will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 12.
Country music star Chris Stapleton will have the honor of singing the national anthem before the contest, which is a first for the eight-time Grammy and 15-time Country Music Award winner.
Legendary R & B singer, songwriter, and producer Babyface, who has won 12 Grammy Awards in his career, will sing “America The Beautiful” before the game.
“Lift Every Voice and Sing” will be performed by actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, who is currently starring in ABC’s comedy series “Abbott Elementary.” She won a Critics Choice Award for her performance in that show along with being nominated for a Golden Globe and NAACP Image Award.
Oscar winner Troy Kotsur will perform the national anthem in American Sign Language with Colin Denny doing the same for “America The Beautiful” and Justina Miles signing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
