"I'll be in Tampa Bay with [Eric Church] to sing the National Anthem for Super Bowl LV!" she excitedly wrote in the caption. The duo will be performing at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
Fans are pretty stoked to witness the Grammy-winning songstress' performance. Many of them took to Twitter to share their excitement and said they were glad that the NFL chose Sullivan.
"I'm glad to see Jazmine Sullivan getting some of the appreciation she deserves," one fan wrote. Many consider this an excellent opportunity for the gifted singer to take her career to new heights.
She has already started working on a new album...
Another fan shared how they are glad that people are giving Sullivan her flowers now. Calling her the hidden gem in the music world, they rejoiced over the possibility that the singer will have many more fans now.
Jay-Z's Roc Nation will be joining forces with Jesse Collins as they gear up to executive produce the halftime performance this year. The Weeknd will headline the halftime show.
As someone who is all about empowering women in R&B, this is a great opportunity for Sullivan. She recently spoke to Billboard about how her new album "Heaux Tales" is about liberation and female power. She said:
"How I present myself is how I choose to, and you're going to accept it. Women are really standing in their confidence and power now, and I wanted to add to that in this way."
"Heaux Tales" is her first album in five years since the release of "Reality Show." She has already started working on a new album, pledging it will not take another five years.
Sullivan thinks she is older than many artists now, but she hopes people will hear themselves in her music. She is just happy that women like Ari Lennox, H.E.R., and SZA are doing their thing and killing it.
