Usher’s halftime show may have been the talk of Super Bowl LVIII, but he wasn’t the only performer at the big game. Before the San Francisco 49ers and eventual winners the Kansas City Chiefs even got on the field, a trio of artists entertained during the pregame festivities. Included among them was Andra Day who kicked things off before kickoff by singing “Lift Every Voice And Sing.”

Day stood at the 50-yard line backed by a small choir of six female singers. She started the song widely known as the Black national anthem off a little solemn, but by the time she got to the chorus, she really got into it and hit some big notes. The choir was also feeling it and having a good time behind her with their choreographed moves and emotive vocals. At the song’s end, everyone’s voices soared together in harmony, and the ladies in the choir joined hands to triumphantly raise them to the sky.

Andra Day’s performance of “Lift Every Voice And Sing” at this year’s Super Bowl is the third year that it’s been sung before the NFL championship game. Sheryl Lee Ralph sang the Black national anthem at Super Bowl LVII and gospel duo Mary Mary performed it before Super Bowl LVI.

This high profile booking for Andra Day is a great look for her as she’s on the verge of releasing her sophomore album CASSANDRA. The project drops on May 10th, and she’s already blessed us with the singles “Where Do We Go” and “Probably.” Be sure to mark your calendars and to pre-save CASSANDRA now on digital music services.
