Idina Menzel to Sing National Anthem at the Super Bowl

CMA 2014 Country Christmas

Famed Tony winning singer Idina Menzel has been tapped to sing the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl. John Legend will also perform and is scheduled to sing “America the Beautiful.”

Getting to perform at the Super Bowl is one of America’s biggest honors for an entertainer. While the greater honor is doing the halftime show — this year it goes to Katy Perry and her guest Lenny Kravitz – singing the “Star Spangled Banner” is a big privilege too.

The Broadway star who is probably best known for singing the song from the animated hit movie Frozen “Let it Go” now joins the ranks of legendary American singers Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick, Jr., Garth Brooks, Cher, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé Knowles and Christina Aguilera who have all sung the national Anthem in previous Super Bowls.

Menzel tweeted, “It was 1991 and I remember it well: Whitney sings the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Almost as glorious as her voice was her huge radiant smile. I am so humbled and honored to be asked this year.”

Super Bowl XLIX will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona on February 1st and be televised on NBC.
