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.
