HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to NFL.com, “…fourteen-time GRAMMY-award winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys will sing the National Anthem as part of Super Bowl XLVII pregame festivities at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3″.

Keys is scheduled to perform on March 18 at the Toyota Center in Houston and recently unveiled details of her 24-city “Set The World On Fire Tour”.

NFL.com also stated that the Super Bowl draws millions of viewers each year and this year’ game will be no exception: “More than 111.3 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s Super Bowl, the most-watched television program in history. The pregame show and Super Bowl XLVII will be broadcast worldwide”, stated the website.”

Keys just released her fifth studio album “Girl on Fire,” which skyrocketed to the top of the Billboard 200.

Her debut album, “Songs in A Minor” was a commercial success and went on to sell over 12 million copies worldwide.

NFL.com also stated that Keys follows in the footsteps of great, world class entertainers who have sung the National Anthem before: “Keys is among many great performers who have been honored with singing the Super Bowl National Anthem including: Kelly Clarkson, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick, Jr., Garth Brooks, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Jewel, Cher, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, Dixie Chicks and many more”.
