Lea Michele to Sing at the Super Bowl Pre-Game Show
Super Bowl Sunday just got a whole lot sweeter, Gleeks. Not only will a special epsiode of 'Glee' air right after the game, but now Lea Michele is scheduled to sing 'America the Beautiful' during the pre-game festivities.
According to E! Online, Lea joins a short list of artists -- including Faith Hill, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Marc Anthony, Ray Charles and Vicki Carr -- to perform the song at the Super Bowl. But this isn't Lea's first time singing at a major sports event. She and her 'Glee' co-stars sang the National Anthem at Game 3 of the World Series in 2009.
Maroon 5 and Keith Urban are also scheduled to perform during the pre-game event, kicking off at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 6, but the music doesn't stop there. Christina Aguilera will sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' before kickoff, and the Black Eyed Peas will hit the stage during the halftime show.
