The Super Bowl is all about football, of course, but music has become a major part of the big show in recent years.
Some of pop music’s biggest stars have headlined the halftime show, from Tony Bennet to Byonce to Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.
This year’s pregame show will feature original cast members from the Broadway smash hit “Hamilton: An American Musical.”
Jasmine Cephas, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Phillipa Soo will sing “America The Beautiful.”
In “Hamilton” the women played the Schuyler Sisters.
At this year’s Super Bowl 51 on February 5th in Houston, Texas, Lady Gaga will headline the halftime show, while country music superstar Luke Bryan will sing the national anthem.
In between it all the New England Patriots will play the Atlanta Falcons.
