Jennifer Hudson performs with the students of Sandy Hook Elementary at the Super Bowl and there isn't a dry eye left in the stadium. You're watching ClevverMusic on YouTube. Grammy and Oscar winning singer Jennifer Hudson, who got her start on "American Idol" performed at the 47th Super Bowl on February 3rd singing "America The Beautiful". But she wasn't alone. 26 students of Sandy Hook elementary school from Newtown Connecticut started out the touching song, wearing white polo shirts and green ribbons, the school's color. The 26 boys and girls reflected the 26 students and teachers who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook shooting.
After a few lines of the song, no stranger to tragedy herself, Jennifer, joined the kids in the middle of the field. Dressed in a tight white skirt and black leather turtleneck Jennifer Hudson wowed us with the big vocals we've come to expect from her. The kids swayed behind her as she sang, seemingly unfazed by the event at all. And then at the end of the song she really let it out and we could finally see the emotion on her face. Jennifer tweeted hours before the game, "Such a privilege to be performing w the Sandy Hook Elementary chorus at the #SuperBowl day. We go on just before kickoff!"
We have to give kudos to the NFL for this emotional moment that started off the game. Following, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers duked it out for the 47th Super Bowl Championship. Jennifer sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in 2009. There's a link below to watch Jennifer's performance, how do you think she did at this Super Bowl?
