North Carolina’s own country rock star Eric Church will be performing a special duet of the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl with the incomparable 12-time Grammy-nominated R&B singer-songwriter, Jazmine Sullivan. An unlikely pairing, the large platform is timely for Sullivan, whose latest EP, Heaux Tales was released earlier this month. 

Church, an Appalachian State University graduate, recently released a new single “Doing Live With Me,” back in December, and also won Entertainer of the Year at the 54th Annual Country Music Association Awards.

The broadcast scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 7, and airing on CBS, will also feature a performance of “America the Beautiful” by Grammy award-winning artist, H.E.R.

In addition, Warren “Wawa” Snipe– an acclaimed deaf rapper and recording artist– will be performing the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” in American Sign Language.

Back in November, Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation announced The Weeknd will perform the halftime show. 

Super Bowl LV will air on February 7, 2021, from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa starting at 6:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
