Stapleton is one of the most successful country music artists working today. His latest album, 2020's Starting Over, became his fourth straight album to hit No. 1 on Billboard's country music charts.

Babyface is an iconic R&B singer and producer. He has won 12 Grammy Awards and has helped produce albums for Madonna, TLC, Mary J. Blige and Boyz II Men.

Ralph co-stars on ABC's Abbott Elementary and won an Emmy for her role as Barbara Howard. The 66-year-old has also worked on the Broadway stage in productions of Dreamgirls, Wicked and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

"Lift Every Voice and Sing" is regarded as the Black national anthem because of its lyrics about the hope for liberty and equality for Black Americans. It has been played before NFL games since the start of the 2020 season.

Super Bowl 57 will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday, Feb. 12.
