Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - For the first time, an Opera singer has been asked to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

Renee Fleming will perform the Star Spangled Banner at tomorrow night's game.

We spoke to Dr. Virginia Sublett at NDSU's School of Music, who often performs the song at Bison football games.

Dr. Virginia Sublett/NDSU Voice & Opera: "For people, who have not really explored Opera to hear an Opera singer singing directly, singing in English, singing a piece that they know. So, they can really take a judgment from that in terms of the beauty of her voice and how powerful it is to hear it sung that way."
