Pink struggles through flu to sing anthem at Super Bowl

Pink struggles through flu to sing anthem at Super Bowl

According the the New York Post, Pink skipped some of the words during the songs, relying on her backup singers at a concert at Nomadic Live at the Armory in Minneapolis.

President Trump extends his greetings and appreciation to those who make the Super Bowl possible.

The NFL announced that Pink had been tapped for the national anthem on January 8.

Prior to the game, President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff: Nunes gave Trump "secretly altered" version of memo Davis: "Deep state" existed in '16 - but it elected Trump Former Trump legal spokesman to testify to Mueller about undisclosed call: report MORE released a statement in which he called on Americans to "proudly stand for the National Anthem". Their sacrifice is stitched into each star and every stripe of our Star-Spangled Banner.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of the National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say 'Get that son of a b-- off the field right now?"

BATTLING the flu, three-time Grammy Award victor Pink powered through a pre-Super Bowl concert, still hitting high notes, flying through the air and dancing onstage just two days before she will sing the national anthem at America's biggest sports game.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that in a message before today's Super Bowl LII, Trump included mention of standing for the anthem. "We may all have different approaches in the struggle towards creating a more equal and just nation, we may not always agree (like the wide unpopularity of Muhammad Ali's protests) - but everyone who truly loves America knows we are all in this journey together". Trump said in September at a rally in Huntsville, Al.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady broke with Trump on the issue last fall, calling Trump's comments "just divisive".

The Pittsburgh Steelers have won six Super Bowls, the most of any team.

Trump declined to participate in the tradition of a Super Bowl interview with NBC, the network broadcasting the game.

The mother of two told the audience she had the flu and that her children "cough into my mouth and I can't stop them 'cause they're so cute".
