The Super Bowl XLVII pregame show will feature several musical performances, including a performance by 26 students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., according to a report from USA Today.
The performance will come just over a month after a mass shooting at the school that killed 26 students and faculty. The group of students will sing America the Beautiful, according to the report. The performance will occur as part of CBS' live pregame show, and will be followed by Alicia Keys signing the National Anthem.
The NFL will fly the students and their families to New Orleans in what is another gesture of support from the league to the Newtown community. Following the shooting, players wore stickers with the letters S.H.E.S. on them. Others added personal messages on their cleats or gloves. Beyond that, the NFL has made charitable donations for relief causes and other support.
While the shooting occurred in Connecticut, players from all over the league showed support for the Newtown community. New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz visited with the family of one of the victims. Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson donated game-worn shoes to the relief, while Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt hosted students before a game.
