The Super Bowl Goes Classical
For the first time in Super Bowl history an Opera star will perform the National Anthem. Opera star Renee Fleming a four time Grammy winner well perform at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, on February 2nd. The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks are sure to hear a soul stirring performance as this great voice takes the stage.
Fleming is known as “The People’s Diva” because of her ties to the New York’s most famous stages. She has won numerous awards including the National Medal of Arts, America’s highest honor to artists.
Because of past Super Bowl performances that caused controversy such as the Janet Jackson nipple exposure and Beyonce sexually charged show, the NFL was looking for fewer distractions this year and opera is definitely a safe bet.
