Country singer and four-time GRAMMY nominee Mickey Guyton kicked off Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California with a stunning rendition of the National Anthem. 

Draped in a long-sleeved royal blue dress, Guyton represented country music on the field of SoFi Stadium with an awe-inspiring performance. Surrounded by a choir of ten people dressed in white from all walks of life, Guyton delivered a message of unity.

Guyton told the New York Post, “I set my intentions with singing the national anthem.” She continued, ”I was like, ‘OK, togetherness is what I really want.’ So, I felt the way that people would feel togetherness is if I had a choir, with people that I believe represent America.”

She later added, “And, you know, I have everybody from my black queen to a redneck cowboy to a girl that has one leg in this choir. And that’s the America that I’m proud of — us all standing together. We all belong.”

Shortly after the performance, Guyton took to Twitter to reflect on the moment and share her gratitude.

”What a dream. Thankful. 🤍,” Guyton captioned the tweet.
