Leslie Odom, Jr. to sing ‘America The Beautiful’ at Super Bowl
We’re still more than a week away from finding out who’ll be playing in the Super Bowl, but we know who will be performing before the game.
Tony and Grammy Award-winning performer Leslie Odom, Jr. will sing America The Beautiful as part of the Super Bowl LII pregame festivities at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 4, the NFL and NBC announced Saturday. Odom’s performance will be part of NBC’s Super Bowl broadcast.
Five days after the acquittal, Hernandez was found hanged from a bedsheet in his prison cell. He was pronounced dead an hour later.
A news service that provides WCVB some digital content accidentally posted a pic of Aaron Hernandez in connection w/Pats AFC champ win on our social media. It’s embarrassing & unacceptable. We apologize & are working w/team to correct so something like this never happens again.
The league’s appeal of the injunction is before U.S. District Judge Amos L. Mazzant III, who granted a request by the NFL Players Association for a preliminary injunction keeping the suspension on hold while the NFLPA’s challenge of Elliott’s penalty proceeds in court.
Assuming that Mazzant does not reverse his own ruling, the league’s appeal of the injunction and request for an emergency stay of it would go before the appeals court.
Some legal experts have said they think it is likely Elliott will remain eligible to play all season under the injunction. The NFL has publicly disputed the characterization of that scenario being the likely outcome, while acknowledging it is possible.
