The full entertainment lineup for the 2023 Super Bowl has arrived.
In addition to Rihanna’s highly anticipated halftime performance, a number of additional Hollywood heavyweights are joining the major sporting event as pre-show performers.
The NFL announced Tuesday that Emmy-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing” on the pre-show. The “Abbott Elementary” star notably sang on stage while accepting her Emmy award in 2022.
Joining Ralph in the pre-show festivities is Grammy-winning country music artist Chris Stapleton, who has been tapped to sing the national anthem. R&B crooner Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds will also perform, with a rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
According to a statement from the NFL, each interpreter will be accompanied by a talent to provide American Sign Language (ASL) on behalf of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD).
Oscar winner Troy Kotsur will sign the national anthem alongside Stapleton. Kotsur won a supporting actor Oscar in 2022 for his work in ‘CODA’, becoming the second deaf person to win an acting Oscar after Marlee Matlin.
