The singer revealed in the caption shared alongside a video of her performance that proceeds from the evening’s visual album will be going towards the NFL’s “Inspire Change” initiative, which emphasizes education and economic development, community and police relations, and criminal justice reform.
The singer and songwriter thanked the NFL for “having her” at the annual sporting event, where the best teams in football battle to be named the overall champions of the season. Thus far, the clip of Demi’s performance has been viewed over 5 million times.
Just one week after a jaw-dropping performance at the Grammy Awards, where she sang her newest single “Anyone,” Demi was poised and ready to regain her title as one of the best female voices of her generation after enduring a nearly life-ending overdose in July 2018.
Wearing an outfit identical in color to the Christian Siriano gown she sported for the Grammy Awards — a voluminous dress featuring long sleeves and studs across her chest and waist — Demi once again appeared as a vision in white while taking her place at the microphone to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Bustle reported that Demi’s jumpsuit was created by Sergio Hudson. Her bejeweled bustier was by Ermanno Scervino and she wore shoes by Stuart Weitzman. Her accessories included diamond earrings and rings by Tacori.
Demi’s hair was long and full, with extensions that allowed her locks to fall almost to her waist. Her makeup featured dark, dramatic eyes, sculpted cheekbones, and pale lips.
Her version of the national anthem officially kicked off the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, performing for those at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and an audience of millions watching the broadcast around the world.
Fans were thrilled to be able to share how much they enjoyed her rendition of the song in the comments section of the singer’s post.
“Dream come true and you deserve it!!” remarked one fan, who appreciated Demi’s version of the vocally challenging tune.
“This sent chills down my spine!!! You Absolutely Blew This Out Of The Water!!” enthused a second follower.
“My girl! Such a beautiful moment and am so grateful I was able to witness it!! I love you! So proud of you!!” a third comment read.
Demi’s performance was followed by an outstanding halftime collaboration between Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. The game ultimately concluded with a dramatic win for Kansas City.
