The Super Bowl XLVII is near and it seems that a different celebrity will be taking part in the event.

USA Today got word that Jennifer Husdon is going to be making a second appearance at the Super Bowl with the 26 students from Sandy Hook Elementary School. The students will join Hudson in singing “America The Beautiful” on stage during the pregame show on Sunday, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Thursday.

The NFL invited the students to sing a little more than a month after 26 children and faculty members were killed in the tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. The league is flying the students and their families to New Orleans later this week in advance of the performance, which will be broadcast live on CBS shortly before Alicia Keys performs the National Anthem. NFL teams such as The New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans and others have been reaching out to the victims and their families since the devastating shooting at Sandy Hook.
