Fourteen-time Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys will sing the National Anthem as part of Super Bowl XLVII pregame festivities at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3, the NFL and CBS have announced.

The performance will be televised live on CBS prior to kickoff.

More than 111.3 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s Super Bowl, the most-watched television program in history. The pregame show and Super Bowl XLVII will be broadcast worldwide.
