Newtown children to sing at the Super Bowl
Twenty-six students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman killed 20 children and six staff members on December 14, will sing “America the Beautiful” before the Super Bowl.
The NFL confirmed to USA Today that the students will sing at the Superdome before Alicia Keys performs the national anthem.
The local newspaper the News-Times reported that an anonymous donor would pay for the 26 members of the Sandy Hook choir to travel to New Orleans.
The NFL observed a moment of silence before every game in the week after the Newtown shooting.
