Super Bowl Meets the Opera During National Anthem

Oh, say, can you hear? I’m sure you will when an opera star belts out the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Yep, opera star Renee Fleming will sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl. I guess we’ve become accustomed to trendy pop and country stars doing the honors, but New York is taking on a different approach with the first opera singer to ever do the honors before the big game. Associated Press tells us that Fleming is known as “The People’s Diva,” having grown up in Rochester, New York and is a local opera fan favorite.

I assume the glitzy, opulent glitter-football championship trophy will be contained in a special sound-proof enclosure to keep from shattering when Renee hits a few of those high notes.  DB
