Other performers include Babyface, a twelve-time Grammy winner who will sing “America the Beautiful,” while Emmy-award winner and Golden Globe-nominate Sheryl Lee Ralph has been picked to sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as the black national anthem.

The line-up last year for Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California, included artist Mickey Guyton, who sang the national anthem; R&B hitmaker Jhené Aiko, who performed “America the Beautiful”; and the gospel duo Mary Mary, who sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing” as they were accompanied by the L.A. Philharmonic’s Youth Orchestra.
It was previously announced that Rihanna would headline the halftime show following last year’s star-studded performance from Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
Super Bowl LVII is set to take place on February 12.
