Babyface and Sheryl Lee Ralph may be no strangers to scoring widespread acclaim for their music and acting efforts respectively, but now the entertainment legends are looking to score critical touchdowns by bringing their celebrated talents to this year’s Super Bowl.
The NFL took to press Tuesday (January 24) to announce the 2023 Super Bowl’s pre-game entertainment lineup.
Toplined by 8-time Grammy winner Chris Stapleton, the Country superstar is slated to deliver the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ at the big game while EMMY-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph will sing ‘Lift Every Voice & Sing’ and ‘America the Beautiful’ will be performed by 12-time GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist, songwriter, and producer Babyface (born Kenneth Edmonds).
“Truly excited and honored to perform America the Beautiful at Super Bowl LVII and to be a part of this pregame lineup,” Edmonds shared in a statement.
The report comes as excitement grows for the game’s high octane Halftime show headlined by 9-time GRAMMY winner Rihanna.
All the action unfolds February 12 at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
