Gladys Knight Will Sing The National Anthem The Before Super Bowl

On Thursday, the NFL announced that the Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight, will sing the national anthem before the February 3 Super Bowl in Atlanta. “I am proud to use my voice to unite and represent our country in my hometown of Atlanta,” the seven-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer said in a statement. As The Washington Post alludes to, one of the Super Bowl's most enjoyable prop bets is the over-under on how long a designated singer will take to belt out the "Star-Spangled Banner." Pink, who belted out the anthem before last year's Super Bowl, is one of the few artists to complete the tune in under two minutes.
