___________________________

The day is finally here and the 2014 Super Bowl will be played this evening (February 2). When the game starts and the National Anthem is sung, a question on many minds will probably be “Who is Renee Fleming?” Let us fill you in!

The 54-year-old opera singer is one of the most renowned performers in her industry. She can be heard on over 60 different recordings and she has 10 solo albums of her own.

Last year, President Obama awarded Renee with the National Medal of Arts, America’s highest honor for an individual artist. She is also the recipient of four Grammy Awards, most recently winning the prize for Best Classical Vocal Solo in 2013.

“It’s an enormous risk, again because of the spotlight,” Renee said about performing at the Super Bowl during her press conference last week. “I really wanted to present it in a really serious way.”
