The honor of singing "The Star Spangled Banner," before the 54th Super Bowl goes to pop star Demi Lovato, who'll represent the United States and carry on a tradition of big vocal talent on the biggest stage. Christine Sun Kim, a multi-platinum singer and songwriter who knows a thing or two about performing in front of millions, will join Lovato, whose rendition of the anthem will be broadcast live just ahead of kickoff. Lovato has a face, name and voice recognizable by many worldwide -- fans familiar with not only her top-selling records, but also her work as an philanthropist, actress and much more.
