JAZMINE Sullivan is among the roster of superstar artist slated to perform at Super Bowl LV.
The popular R&B singer recently released her critically acclaimed fourth album, Heaux Tales, ahead of her upcoming gig for the annual NFL showdown.
Who is Jazmine Sullivan?
Jazmine Sullivan is an R&B singer who's slated to perform at Super Bowl LV alongside fellow artists H.E.R. and Eric Church.
The 33-year-old songwriter was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Although she's been nominated for 12 Grammy Awards in nearly as many years, she has yet to win the highly-coveted gramophone.
She announced her big gig on Instagram, writing: "I’ll be in Tampa Bay with @ericchurchmusic to sing the National Anthem for Super Bowl LV! Tune-in on Feb 7 to the Super Bowl on @cbstv Kick-Off Show at 6 PM ET."
Her debut album Fearless was co-produced by Missy Elliott and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts in 2008.
Prior to the release of her first album, she found success when she cowrote Christina Milian's song Say I in 2005.
She briefly stepped away from music in 2010, and announced she was taking a hiatus in 2011.
After dealing with personal loss and trauma from an abusive relationship during a seven-year break from the spotlight, she dropped her latest album in 2021.
Why is she singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl?
Sullivan was tapped to perform at the big event following the critical and commercial success of her fourth album.
A New York Times review described her music as a tune that "carries the churchy, high-stakes emotionality and down-to-earth detail of vintage Southern soul into the everyday situations and electronic soundscapes of hip-hop."
Sullivan and Church will perform a duet of the national anthem - the first duo since Aaron Neville and Aretha Franklin sang before Super Bowl XL in 2006, according to Vulture.
When is Super Bowl LV?
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will go head-to-head with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs for Super Bowl LV.
