Alicia Keys to sing National Anthem at Super Bowl

The Girl on Fire is Super Bowl-bound.

Alicia Keys will sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this year, according to a press release. This will be the Grammy winner’s first time performing the Super Bowl honor, although she has twice before performed during the pre-show.

In addition to Keys’ National Anthem, Beyoncé will be performing the Super Bowl halftime show, and reports abound that Destiny’s Child will be joining her, presumably to help her perform the trio’s first new release in a decade, “Nuclear.” Beyoncé herself tackled the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in 2004; Kelly Clarkson had the honor last year.

While unlikely to perform it at the big game, Beyoncé and Alicia Keys have recorded a collaboration together, the song “Put It In A Love Song,” from Keys’ album The Element of Freedom. The two will also be performing separately at a number of Inauguration events this weekend.

Super Bowl XLVII takes place Feb. 3 in New Orleans.
