ATLANTA — Soul singer Gladys Knight will perform at the 2019 Super Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday, Feb 3.
You can catch Super Bowl 53 on WFMY News 2/CBS.
The Atlanta native will sing the national anthem before the NFL’s biggest game of the season, the NFL announced Thursday.
"I am proud to use my voice to unite and represent our country in my hometown of Atlanta," Knight said in a statement. "The NFL recently announced their new social justice platform Inspire Change, and I am honored to be a part of its inaugural year."
Less than a year ago, April 19, 2018, Knight performed at the Carolina Theatre in Greensboro during the theater's gala and fundraiser.
Wednesday, the committee released the final details and more performers on the list. Singer Monica, country music star Craig Campbell, Atlanta-born indie rock and pop group Hero The Band and other entertainers are a part of the line up.
Super Bowl LIVE presented by Verizon will run from Saturday, Jan. 26 until Saturday, Feb. 2.
