Jazmine Sullivan is a complete powerhouse. Her talent walks into a room before she does. From her range to her control to her vibrato, she knows how to shake the room. There’s no difference even when she’s performing The Star Spangled Banner in front of a crowd of baseball fans.
Before game 5 of the championship, the Philadelphia native wowed fans with her rendition of The National Anthem. The crowd went wild hearing her voice echo through the stadium. Some would even say she knocked the performance out of the park.
One may remember the last time the singer took on the Star Spangled Banner. The 2021 Super Bowl was graced with Sullivan’s singing capabilities in a performance to remember. Alongside Eric Church, the two made it known that they did not walk out on that field to play. With a performance like that, it was to be expected that her World Series performance would be unforgettable, especially in her home town.
In an interview the singer discussed her reaction to the last minute call to perform at the Super Bowl. “My mouth dropped,” she recalled. “I never even considered that this was something I would ever do. I thought the Super Bowl was only for super duper famous people.”
Which she is. Jazmine Sullivan has received two Grammy Awards, a Billboard Women in Music Award, two Soul Train Music Awards, three NAACP Image Awards, and two BET Awards over the course of her career. Additionally, just this year, Time placed her on their list of the 100 Most Influential People.
