Latifah to Sing ‘America the Beautiful’ During Super Bowl Pregame Show

Queen Latifah will follow up her mass wedding at the Grammys with a performance at the Super Bowl.

 The talk show host, who officiated the marriages of 33 couples during Macklemore and Ryan Lewis‘ production number at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, will deliver “America the Beautiful” at the pregame show on Fox, it was announced Monday.

Latifah has performed the task before, at Super Bowl XLIV, four years ago. Last year, Jennifer Hudson did the honors, accompanied by 26 children from Newtown, Conn., following the December 2012 school shootings there.

Other artists who have performed the song for the occasion of the big game include Ray Charles, Alicia Keys, Faith Hill and Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert.
