Yolanda Adams Opens Super Bowl 2020 With A Performance Of "America the Beautiful"
Yolanda Adams, a four-time GRAMMY-winning gospel icon, officially opened Super Bowl 2020 today (Sunday, Feb. 2) with a beautiful performance of "America The Beautiful."
For her rendition of the patriotic song, Adams invited The Children’s Voice Chorus, a local youth vocal group from Miami, where the Super Bowl is taking place this year.
Adams' Super Bowl performance is the latest in a busy year for the singer. Last month, she was nominated at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards in the Best Gospel Performance/Song category for her performance on "Talkin' 'Bout Jesus," a featured track on Gloria Gaynor's 2019 GRAMMY-winning album, Testimony.
Other musical highlights from Super Bowl 2020 included a dazzling, star-studded halftime show from Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, which featured surprise performances from Bad Bunny and J Balvin, plus a powerful rendition of the U.S. national anthem from Demi Lovato.
