Music's In The Air: Renee Fleming To Sing The National Anthem On Super Bowl Sunday

Jenny Geng

Staff Writer

Renee Fleming will be the first opera singer to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl this coming Sunday. What’s notable about this particular performance is that it will be sung live. If the idea of makes you nervous, have no fear!  “I only know how to sing live," quipped the opera singer. "The thing I love to remind people about [singing opera] is we're not even amplified," Fleming said to the Associated Press. "We are the final, major art form that is 100 percent acoustic and unplugged." Fleming is a renowned soprano who has performed all around the world.  She has also sung for Queen Elizabeth II and President Barack Obama. On her reaction upon being invited to perform, Fleming replied, “I just thought… ‘it must be a joke.' Nobody's going to ask me to sing for the Super Bowl, even the national anthem, because it's just never been done, that anybody who was in classical music or any other genre, frankly, other than really mainstream, successful, top-selling, commercial, mainstream artists.  So I was stunned when it was real!” In an age of digital manipulation and lip-synching, singing live is the exception rather than the rule. It will be incredibly refreshing to see and hear a genuine and unaltered interpretation of the National Anthem.
