Renee Elise Goldsberry, Jasmine Cephas Jones and Phillipa Soo — who played the Schuyler sisters in the original Broadway production of the Tony-winning hit “Hamilton” — will sing “America the Beautiful” at Super Bowl LI.
The NFL previously announced that Luke Byran will sing the national anthem before the kickoff at Houston’s at NRG Stadium on Feb. 5. (Kriston Lee Pumphrey will perform the anthem in American Sign Language.)
Lady Gaga is scheduled to headline the halftime show, which will be executive produced by Ricky Kirshner.
The “Hamilton” trio follow a distinguished line of performers of the patriotic song at past Super Bowls, including Vikki Carr, Ray Charles, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Faith Hill and Jennifer Hudson.
Goldsberry won a Tony Award last June for her performance as the eldest Schulyer sister in “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda’s blockbuster musical about the founding father Alexander Hamilton.
