Per USA Today ([url="http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2013/01/30/newtown-children-super-bowl/1878349/"]link[/url])

[quote]A little more than a month after the tragic mass shooting of 26 students and faculty at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., a group of 26 students from the school will perform [i]America the Beautiful [/i]during the Super Bowl XLVII pregame show, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday.

The league is flying the students and their families down 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.

The gesture will cap a season in which the league lent its support to the Newtown community via "S.H.E.S." stickers on helmets, personal messages on cleats and gloves, moments of silence before games and charitable donations for relief causes, as well other means of emotional support.

Every once in a while, the NFL gets something [i]really[/i] right.

Well done by the NFL. Except it should be every student from Sandy Hook.

Alicia Keys is terrible live, she has no control over her vocals at all. She screams.

Yeah, but Beyonce sucks. So, it doesn't matter. Not to mention, that terrible douche Jay-Z will be performing with her. Eh, I'm skipping the halftime show.

Haha because you were at Newtown and you know exactly what happened. Or are you just listening to what the news tells you even though they changed their story 100 times?

Personally, I don't believe in the hoax, but your statement is just as idiotic.

I hope to see the NFL invite some of the local Chicago choirs, also at some point. The girl who sang at Obamas inauguration, if she was in a choir or singing group, I hope they're invited to an NFL event as well.

She'll probably lip-synch anyway, which still will be bad.

It seems you can find a YouTube conspiracy video about anything.

It certainly is a nice gesture by the NFL.

Dear Sandy Hook "Truthers",
I have it on good authority that the exact details of what all went down are packaged and placed at the very bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Please seek them out without safety gear or oxygen tanks.

Am I the only one that thinks they SHOULDN"T do this? Doesn't seem right. Especially when "26" students are signing only.

Because that's what I said. Can you read?

You are criticizing people for believing everything they see on the internet, when you are clearly guilty of the same thing; believing everything you see on the news.
