The esteemed artist and the Miami chorus took the stage during the big game’s preshow.
Before the Super Bowl LIV kickoff on Sunday, Yolanda Adams and the Children’s Chorus of Miami took the stage to sing the annual rendition of America the Beautiful at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Adams stood atop a giant white football, in a black and white floral pantsuit, with the Children’s Chorus behind her on the field in all white, harmonizing with the gospel legend. Cameras caught the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs players watching the traditional performance.
Adams keeps busy as a gospel singer, record producer, actress and radio host of her own nationally syndicated morning gospel show, while the Children’s Chorus of Miami strives to provide young singers from all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds with music education.
For the first time in Super Bowl history, Adams and the Chorus’ performance was made available for download shortly after it aired on TV in the NFL’s new visual album, Super Bowl LIV Live. Demi Lovato’s rendition of the national anthem and Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s halftime show performances at the game will also be available on the album.
Adams and the Children’s Chorus join the ranks of Chloe x Halle, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo, Jasmine Cephas Jones and Alicia Keys, who have all sung “America the Beautiful” before at previous Super Bowls.
