Taking the center stage on February 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome before Super Bowl XLVII, Alicia Keys gave a national anthem performance better than anyone else.
The 14-time Grammy Award winner performed the song on a piano softly vocalizing the song. Keys' rendition was not just mesmerizing, it was extremely powerful, moving and comforting… we couldn’t have expected a better performance by the beautiful ’Brand New Me’ singer.
