Renee Fleming Belts Out The National Anthem At The Super Bowl — Watch

Sun, February 2, 2014 7:08pm EST by 12 Comments

Wow! Opera singer Renee Fleming did America proud with her gorgeous rendition of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ at the 2014 Super Bowl!

Four-time Grammy-winner Renee Fleming wowed the crowd when she took the field before the Denver Broncos played the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2 at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. Renee was the first opera singer ever to sing at the Super Bowl, and she did an amazing job!

If people didn’t know who Renee, 54, was before, they certainly do now! The famous soprano from New York was definitely an unusual choice to sing the National Anthem — the honor is usually reserved for superstars such as  Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera and Carrie Underwood.

That said, we loved the energy and emotion Renee brought to her beautiful performance! At the sound of her powerhouse voice, Broncos and Seahawks players, as well as everyone in the crowd, stopped and put their hands over their hearts to hear the lovely soprano sing our nation’s song.

From Renee’s very first note to her belting out “the home of the brave,” the audience — including us — was absolutely riveted.

Of course, this isn’t Renee’s first ball game. She is used to performing at The Met, and she even had some sports performing experience before this — she sang the National Anthem during the 2003 World Series at Yankee Stadium.

Renee Joins Top Names To Sing At Super Bowl

The music of the Super Bowl is almost as talked about as the actual game. For the half time show, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars are taking the stage and have quite the performance to top from last year — Beyonce did shut off the lights, after all.

Even before the game, Renee had the approval of Diane Sawyer, who called Renee the “Queen of the high note” and said that “she will rock.” Renee took to Twitter to thank her, saying:

So HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Renee’s performance at the big game? Let us know!

Renee Flemings singing the National anthem was superb. Bring her back next year. She sang it and did not rap it. Queen Latifah did a rotten job on God Bless America. She had to rap it and ruin it.

Never saw the black chick sing. Must have been a show for the whites and then one for the darks. Too bad you missed the good one.

Queen Latifah sang America The Beautiful. Fleming sang the National Anthem. Two different songs, my Dear.

She sang it with respect and reverence, no crappy falsettos that were never intended to be there and she knew the words.
