Legendary singer Gladys Knight will perform the national anthem before Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3, the NFL and CBS announced Thursday.
“I am proud to use my voice to unite and represent our country in my hometown of Atlanta,” the 74-year-old Knight said.
Knight is enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has won seven Grammy awards. She also has had two No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles during her career: “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “That’s What Friends Are For.”
Deaf activist Aarron Loggins will sign both the anthem and “America The Beautiful.”
