The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to meet in Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders in what should be a thrilling contest.

However, the Super Bowl is more than a game – it is an adventure. It is an experience for fans, players, and coaches alike. There are multiple days of events, and it is a momentous occasion for not just the NFL but for celebrities, musicians, and more. 

For example, being allowed to sing the national anthem or perform during the Super Bowl Halftime Show is arguably the most prestigious honor an artist can earn. Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest American sporting event yearly and typically the most-viewed game of the year across all four major sports.

With that said, who is singing the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl?
