NFL announces pregame entertainment for Super Bowl LVIII

They say whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. That old saying will apply this February as the memories of Super Bowl LVIII will loom greatly as Las Vegas will host its first super bowl. Fans obviously watch the super bowl for the game but it's the pregame entertainment and the halftime show that lights social media and blogs up.

It had already been announced that Usher would headline the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show, which will be produced by DPS with Roc Nation. This weekend the NFL announced that Country Music Hall of Famer and Hollywood Bowl member Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem. McEntire's career accomplishments speak for itself; she has 50 award wins under her belt, including honors from the ACM Awards, American Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, CMA Awards, GRAMMY® Awards and GMA Dove Awards.

Post Malone, the eight-time diamond-certified, Grammy-nominated artist, will sing "America the Beautiful.” Since emerging in 2015, Post Malone’s catalog comprises the Grammy Award-nominated “rockstar” [feat. 21 Savage” (Diamond), “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse)” [feat. Swae Lee] (Diamond), “I Fall Apart” (5x-platinum), “Psycho” [feat. Ty Dolla $ign] (5x-platinum), “White Iverson” (5x-platinum), “Better Now” (4x-platinum).

Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, activist and acclaimed actress Andra Day will sing "Lift Every Voice and Sing." Initially known for her 2016 Grammy-nominated track, “Rise Up,” which amassed over 1 billion streams and an RIAA triple-platinum certification, Day has performed alongside numerous global artists and stars. Her feature-acting debut “The United States vs. Billie Holiday” earned her a nomination for Best Actress at the Oscars, two Golden Globes for Actress in a Drama Motion Picture and Original Song in a Motion Picture.

The pregame entertainment and Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show will also feature premiere American Sign Language (ASL) performances. On behalf of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), actor Daniel Durant, who starred in the Academy Award-winning movie “CODA,” will perform the national anthem in ASL; Actress, model and dancer Anjel Piñero will sign "America the Beautiful;” and Shaheem Sanchez, actor and choreographer, will sign "Lift Every Voice and Sing." Sanchez will perform the ASL rendition of the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show. The ASL pre-game performances and the ASL Halftime show will be produced in partnership with Alexis Kashar of LOVE SIGN and Howard Rosenblum of the NAD.
