Gladys Knight

Soul legend Gladys Knight has agreed to sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb. 3. The NFL announced Thursday that the 74-year-old singer will perform at the Super Bowl.

"I am proud to use my voice to unite and represent our country in my hometown of Atlanta," she said in a statement released by the NFL.

The seven-time Grammy winner joins a limited Super Bowl lineup that includes rock band Maroon 5, and rappers Travis Scott, Big Boi and Flo Rida, who will perform during halftime.

Rihanna and Cardi B are among the hip hop artists who declined the NFL's invitation to perform at the Super Bowl. They cited their support for former quarterback Colin Kaepernick's ongoing Anthem protest issues with the league.

Pop singer Pink battled the flu while singing the National Anthem in 2018. And country singer Luke Bryan sang the Anthem in 2017.

  • Ni Ni

    But, the players aren't boycotting. This boycott makes no sense.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, but Kaepernick is still shut out of the league, so folks are still mad.

  • Yardgirl

    Oh Miss Gladys I love thee sooo murch, but what in the fawk is that on your head??

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Yall... im not gonna defend her or travis but i will say that One thing i learned from colin is that unless you willing to go broke and hungry you need to watch how hard you go. He’s 100 percent right about everything he’s kneeling down for and look what that’s brought him? Nobody stopped watching football, no minority player stopped playing in solidarity, it was business as usual and still is. I say all that to say that while i wont stop yall from dragging auntie knight and travis, i wont join in because as much as it hurts i kind of get it.

    one of the last times i watched, he was opening restaurants in her name, but without her consent. i think she finally had to take him to court, smh

  • Yoni7

    What in the Party City, Halloween blowout, Superbowl Special, liquidation sale, walk-ins only accepted hell is going on here?

  • Yoni7

    Noooo!!! Last I remember, he was dating Jennifer Williams from BBW.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Gladys and Jermaine Jackson must have the same barber/hairstylist connect

    I wont be watching the superbowl. Yall think Pattie or Aretha would have sang?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    from what i saw of Sweetie Pie's, Ms. Robbie wanted to give Tim her legacy and have something for the generations that would follow her And him. he seems to be in a state of 'arrested development' in that he's a grown man, but still relies on him mom to be the provider. but then, just like a young boy, he tries to sneak around and do his own thing (which would be okay, if he was using his own assets and not hers). i stopped watching because you can see how much she loves her family and specifically her son, but he seemed so self-centered and hard-headed, i couldn't watch anymore.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Inappropriate and unstyled for her age. Should have been left at the store.

  • Yoni7

    I was hoping for so "Love Overboard"

    you are correct--the struggle ain't for everybody. that's why i cap so hard for him cause the man sacrificed it ALL for these mofos to go walk on the stage. if you not willing to make the sacrifice at least don't jig with the oppressor. they all should have given a polite "i'm booked". i heard they don't even get paid so it ain't a feed my family thing.

    The only way I'm approving this is if she does The Way We Were but, during the monologue part, she changes the words to reflect the times... "... we look back and we think, the people were warmer, we accepted people for who they are and not what they look like, our future looked... bright." And, the only way I'm forgiving Big Boi is if he performs in a Kaepernick jersey and ends on one knee.

    Wow I don't see it like that at all.

    Ms. Robbie was kind of an Indian giver. On one hand she said that the store is for Tim and his son but whenever Tim came to her with an idea to expand the brand she was always negative if she didn't turn him down flat.

    Basically Tim put a lot of work into those stores and had a lot of good ideas like the bottled iced tea and having more restaurants in different cities but I guess she thought he should be glad just to work for her and wait until after she had died and passed the Sweetie Pie brand onto him before he expressed his ideas.

    So you think even though she claims she built the company for her son and grandson Tim should be like any other worker and just wait for her to die before he implements any of his own ideas?

    Yes I read what Gladys said, it was a very carefully curated message indeed...doesn’t take away from the fact that she’s letting the NFL use her. Why are all the performers negro?

    No clue who that is, doesn’t mean they are not a big deal just means I don’t follow their careers. Since you brought them up I’m going to assume they are white.
