Super Bowl XLVIII won't just be the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold-weathered city, it will also feature another first: the national anthem sung by an opera singer, according to the Associated Press. Four-time Grammy winner Renee Fleming will handle the "The Star-Spangled Banner" at MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2.
This won't be the first time Fleming's performed at a big event. The 54-year-old opera singer also performed at President Obama's first Inaugural celebration in 2009 and at Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee in June 2012.
Fleming joins a diverse group of people that have handled the national anthem at the Super Bowl, including: Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Billy Joel, Mariah Carey and the Backstreet Boys.
The opera singer also once sang the Top-10 list on the Late Show with David Letterman, which you can see below.
