The Patriots will play the Rams on Feb 3rd in this year’s Super Bowl and Chloe x Halle will take part in a SB tradition.
The singer/actor sister duo will perform “America The Beautiful” at SB 53, as part pre-game festivities. Atlanta on February 3rd. The NFL has of course already confirmed half-time acts, Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi; and while Gladys Knight will sing the National Anthem.
Like Travis Scott’s announcement, social media is divided about the girls taking part in the big game. Chloe x Halle have a history with the NFL, as they sang that National Anthem at the 2017 draft. They also most recently were on tour with Beyonce and Jay-Z for their North American leg of the OTR II tour. The girls also have reoccurring roles on Grownish which of course is a spin off of Blackish. With that being said, many feel that this is a bad move on the girl’s part and are confused especially seeing how they have ties to Bey & Jay who have publicly denounced the NFL many times.
Chloe and Halle are playing chess not checkers. They about to raise their stardom a few feet taller performing at the superbowl. Thats the biggest stage for any artist. Wow. Im so proud.

This what I don’t understand…
Travis Scott is set to perform even after Hov and Meek told him not to. People are upset.
However Chloe & Halle, who are Beyoncé’s artists, are performing. Where’s the boycott for them? https://t.co/szve6GQ3td
