Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan rocked “The Star-Spangled Banner” ahead of kickoff at Super Bowl LV Sunday in Tampa Bay, Florida.
The duo sharing the national anthem was truly one for the books as they harmonized perfectly during their performance at Raymond James stadium just before the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took the field to battle for the title of the best team in the NFL.

The honor to sing the national anthem on the world’s biggest stage is one that many of the greatest performers of our time have held, including the likes of Gladys Knight, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato and Whitney Houston, just to name a few, per CBSSports.com.
After the two sang the national anthem, the U.S. Air Force conducted a historic triple-bomber flyover over the stadium that was truly a very patriotic moment.

The three bombers converged and passed over the stadium during the final notes of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
The flyover consisted of a B-1B Lancer from Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota; a B-2 Spirit from Whiteman AFB in Missouri; and a B-52 Stratofortress from Minot AFB in North Dakota.
Each bomber took off for the Super Bowl from their home bases, then joined up for the flyover before returning back to their bases.
