Sheryl Lee Ralph
Powerful figures from the GOP side of the political aisle angrily reacted to the Black National Anthem being sung at Super Bowl LVII.
Sheryl Lee Ralph captivated the crowd for Super Bowl LVII on Sunday as she performed "Lift Every Voice and Sing" to open the musical portion of the penultimate game of the NFL season. The 'Abbott Elementary' actress noted that she'd be singing the song 123 years to the day it was first performed publicly.
As just the second Black actress to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress, Sheryl Lee Ralph stunned the audience by singing a verse from “Endangered Species,” by jazz singer Diane Reeves.
