Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan are set to pair up for the first time to sing the National Anthem as part of Super Bowl LV pregame festivities at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay on Sunday, February the NFL announced.

H.E.R. will join the pregame lineup with her rendition of America the Beautiful.

All pregame festivities along with Super Bowl LV will air nationally on CBS and will be broadcast live worldwide.

Choosing a country and R&B singer to perform the National Anthem seems like the NFL making an appeal to unity, after a contentious presidential election. We could sure use some right about now. 

Church and Sullivan will join a prestigious line up of Super Bowl National Anthem performers, including: Demi Lovato, Gladys Knight, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Luke Bryan, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Billy Joel, P!NK, Jordin Sparks, Idina Menzel, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, and Neil Diamond.

H.E.R. joins critically acclaimed and award-winning America the Beautiful performers such as: Yolanda Adams, Leslie Odom Jr, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo, Jasmine Cephas Jones and Alicia Keys.

In addition, on behalf of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), Warren “Wawa” Snipe, acclaimed Deaf rapper and recording artist, will perform the National Anthem and America the Beautiful in American Sign Language.

For Super Bowl LV, the National Anthem will be arranged and produced by Adam Blackstone.

The NFL previously announced that The Weeknd will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show which will be produced by DPS with Roc Nation and Jesse Collins serving as executive producers, and Hamish Hamilton serving as director. Roc Nation is also serving as the strategic entertainment advisors of the live performance.
