Alicia Keys will sing the National Anthem during Super Bowl XLVII’s pre-game show in New Orleans on February 3. Keys returns to the Super Bowl for a third time, the most by any performer in Super Bowl history.

Speaking to Billboard  about her Super Bowl performance, Keys expressed: “I’m really excited about it, I can’t even lie. I have to rehearse it totally, as if it’s a brand new song, because it is actually a brand new song in the style that I’ll deliver it. I’m actually rehearsing it like a maniac.”
