Video: Alicia Keys sings at Super Bowl
Mon, 04 Feb 2013 12:52p.m.
Alicia Keys performed a lounge-y, piano-tinged - and live - version of the USA’s national anthem ahead of the Super Bowl 2013.
The Grammy-winning singer played the piano as she sang ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ in a long red dress with her eyes shut. Her publicist said the performance was live, days after halftime performer Beyonce admitted singing along to a pre-recorded track at the Inauguration.
Keys' version was soft and featured additional lyrics: She added "living in the home" before belting "home of the brave" as she finished the song.
Before Keys hit the field, Jennifer Hudson performed ‘America the Beautiful’ with the 26-member Sandy Hook Elementary School chorus, a performance that had some players on the sideline on the verge of tears.
Keys and Hudson warmed up the field for Beyonce, who is set to perform at the half-time show.
