Jazmine Sullivan To Sing The National Anthem At Super Bowl LV + H.E.R. Will Sing ‘America The Beautiful’
Jazmine Sullivan is performing at the Super Bowl!
On the heels of her successful release of Heaux Tales, the singer is now slated to sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LV. She will join country singer Eric Church.
H.E.R. will also sing “America the Beautiful.”
As previously reported, The Weeknd will headline the coveted halftime show.
Jay-Z’s Roc Nation is the executive producer for the halftime show, marking its second year taking on the role. Last year, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira served as halftime performers.
Jazmine Sullivan recently spoke on her hiatus from the music industry, stating she took a break after suffering physical abuse in a relationship.
“So I had a horrible relationship that resulted in domestic abuse at the time.”
She released her third studio album ‘Reality Show’ in 2015, featuring her hit single Let It Burn, and says that after touring for the album, she planned on taking a short break that ended up being longer.
“I came back with ‘Reality Show’ after that I had started touring Reality Show. And I had planned on just kinda taking a short break and time kinda got away from me.”
She says that all of her life experiences at the time played a part in her latest project ‘Heaux Tales.’
She spoke on her healing after the situation and said:
“After the aftermath of all of that stuff happening, I was just feeling some type of way about myself, and the decisions that I made and feeling like I needed to give myself some grace and realize that I had been through some things. I had some trauma that I wasn’t fully healed from and I’m okay, I may have done some things that I wasn’t proud of or acted certain ways that I wasn’t proud of, but I’m still good I’m still Jazmine, and that doesn’t make up the whole of me.”
She wanted to extend the same message and lesson to her female fans.
“And that’s what I want females to know is that, certain parts of your life that may not be cookie cutter, or may not be the best, doesn’t make up the sum of you. Give yourself some grace, and give the women around you grace.”
This year’s Super Bowl is scheduled for Feb. 7 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
