The 2014-2015 football season is officially here, and even if you’re not a sports fan, the opening game is always a special one. But tonight, it was even more special because our everything, Ariana Grande herself performed the National Anthem to kick off the game. What a great way to top off a week that included the news that her sophomore album My Everything was also her second No.1 album?
Before last year’s Superbowl winners the Seattle Seahawks squared off against the Green Bay Packers at Seattle’s own CenturyLink Field tonight (September 4), Ariana brought her signature diva voice to the stadium.
The 21-year-old singer was rooting for the home team, sporting a Seahawks jersey and jeans for the performance to honor their champion status. As we’ve come to expect, she hit every note flawlessly, and let’s face it, Ariana could inspired patriotism in even the most cold, competitive heart.
She shared a few shots of her sporty outfit on Instagram:
And it looks like her jersey was customized just for her, awwww! Although, we all know that #3 is Russell Wilson’s number oh heyyyy #3.
Pharrell and native Seattle band Soundgarden also performed during the pre-game festivities, but it was Ariana who brought the stadium to their feet with her high notes. Watch her slay the anthem below.
