Alicia Keys will be providing the opening anthem for the the NFL championship game on Feb. 3 in New Orleans.
Alicia Keys has been busy in the last while. Swizz Beatz'Â otherÂ half is fresh off dropping her highly successful fifth studio album "Girl On Fire" late last year. Getting ready to set out on some tour dates in March, the "Empire State Of Mind" star is bringing her vocal talents to the 47th annual superbowl.
Alicia will be joining the ranks of "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson last year, as well as Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond and Mariah Carey. No doubt she will deliver a memorable rendition, though hopefully not in line with the much-talked aboutÂ lyricÂ botchÂ from Christina Aguilera inÂ 2011.
The NFL championship will also feature a half-time show from fellow R&B legend Beyonce, and will air on FebruaryÂ 3rdÂ on CBS.
