AceShowbiz - In-demand poet Amanda Gorman is heading to the Super Bowl to deliver an original reading honouring three COVID-19 pandemic heroes.
Following on from her history-making performance at U.S. President Joe Biden's inauguration last week (20Jan21), Gorman has been invited to the National Football League's big game on 7 February to recite a new piece celebrating teacher Trimaine Davis, nurse Suzie Dorner, and Marine Corps veteran James Martin, who are being praised for going out of their way to help others during the coronavirus crisis.
NFL bosses will be welcoming the celebrated trio as special guests for the American football showdown, where other vaccinated healthcare workers will also be in attendance.
Gorman will take centre stage just before kickoff at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will take on the Kansas City Chiefs for the Super Bowl title.
The young poet wowed the crowd in D.C. as she recited her poem "The Hill We Climb" at the inauguration. She became the youngest poet to appear at a presidential inauguration in United States history.
The likes of Kerry Washington, Elizabeth Banks, Emmy Rossum, Mandy Moore, Eva Longoria, Daryl Hannah, Busy Philipps, Eric Idle, Oprah Winfrey, Lady GaGa, Jennifer Lopez, and Chrissy Teigen applauded the young artist on social media following her poem delivery.
