Alicia Keys Sings National Anthem On Piano At Super Bowl

Posted:

Alicia Keys performed a lounge-y, piano-tinged — and live — version of the national anthem ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday.

The Grammy-winning singer played the piano as she sang "The Star Spangled Banner" with her eyes shut. Her publicist said the performance was live, days after halftime performer Beyonce admitted singing along to a prerecorded 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.

The students and Hudson wore green ribbons on their shirts in honor of the 20 first-graders and six adults who were killed in a Dec. 14 shooting rampage.
