Other artists joining Ralph in the pregame lineup include 12-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist, songwriter, and producer Babyface, who will sing “America the Beautiful.”

Colin Denny, a member of the Navajo Nation in Arizona, will sign “America the Beautiful,” and Justin Miles will sign “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Miles will also sign at the halftime show headlined by singer Rihanna, who announced her performance back in September 2022.

Ralph, a Golden-Globe nominated actress, has already moved Hollywood with her angelic vocals. She burst into song during her 2022 Emmy speech, singing a few lines of a powerful a cappella from Dianne Reeves’s “Endangered Species.” The memorable speech brought the audience to their feet.

Vanity Fair reported that football fans can also expect a performance of the national anthem from country singer Chris Stapleton, signed by Oscar-winner Troy Kotsur, and a flyover conducted by the U.S. Navy in celebration of 50 years of women flying.

Super Bowl LVII will take place Sunday, February 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
