Demi Lovato’s triumphant return to music will include singing the national anthem at next month’s Super Bowl in Miami. The 27-year-old singer announced on Instagram that she will be following in the footsteps of performances like Whitney Houston, Garth Brooks, Beyonce, and Aretha Franklin in singing ” The Star-Spangled Banner”  before Super Bowl 54 on Feb.2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Lovato’s announcement follows one on Tuesday in which she said she will be singing at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Jan.26 in her first live performance since she was hospitalized for a drug overdose in 2018. Lovato spoke at the Teen Vogue Summit in November n her first public comments since the incident. “What I see in the mirror is someone that’s overcome a lot and I genuinely see a fighter,” Lovato said. “I don’t see a championship winner,  but I see a fighter and someone who is going to continue to fight no matter what is thrown their way.” Lovato succeeds the legendary Gladys Knight, who sang the anthem at last year’s Super Bowl in Atlanta.
