Demi Lovato to Sing National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV After Overdose

Demi Lovato is set to appear at one of the biggest sporting events of the year.

On Thursday on social media, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer announced she will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl LIV in Miami on February 2.

Two days prior, the 27-year-old revealed on Instagram she will perform at the Grammy Awards on January 26.

“I told you the next time you’d hear from me I’d be singing,” she wrote in regards to her Grammys appearance.

Per CNN, the former Disney star has not performed live since her July 2018 overdose, which led to both a hospital and rehab stay.

Months later, in August 2018, Lovato broke her social media silence and vowed to “keep fighting” for her health.

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time,” she wrote. “It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.”

She continued, “I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”
