Super Bowl XLVII is officially underway in New Orleans! Before the Baltimore Ravens kicked off to the San Francisco 49ers, Jennifer Hudson (in a black leather Monika Chiang turtleneck bodysuit and white L’Wren Scott pencil skirt) took to the mic with the vocal backup of the 26-children Sandy Hook Elementary School choir. Together they belted out “America the Beautiful” to a crowd of more than 72,000 people inside the Superdomeand millions more watching live from their Super Bowl partieswith not a dry eye in the house. Then “Girl on Fire” Alicia Keys (in a full-length red Azzedine Alaïa dress and gold accessories by Marina B jewelry) shared her own patriotic pride, with a soulful rendition of the National Anthem she performed seated at a gray piano. Both singers will be followed up by fellow diva Beyoncé during the game’s illustrious halftime showcheck back here after halftime for all the details about her outfits!
