If Demi Lovato has proven anything with her career, it's that dreams do come true. On Sunday, February 2, night the singer will be performing the National Anthem to kick off Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida but almost exactly a decade ago, she dreamed that she would one day be here.
“One day, I’m gonna sing the national anthem at a super bowl. Onnnee dayyy….” Lovato wrote in a tweet dated February 7, 2010, which went viral on Twitter on February 2 in the hours leading up to the big game.
Earlier this week, the 27-year-old singer took to the stage for the first time in over a year at the 2020 Grammy Awards to perform her breathtaking new song 'Anyone', which was written and recorded before her overdose in July 2018. “Well that song, I knew that it represented that period in my life when everything hit the fan,” she revealed to Andy Cohen on Radio Andy SiriusXM Radio Show.
“I also was really proud of the vocal and I thought, ‘I’ve never had a moment like this, you know, where I’ve sat down at a piano or that I’ve stood next to a piano and sang my heart out,” Lovato said. “I’ve never had one of those moments on an awards show, and I thought, ‘you know, if I ever come back from this’ — because I was still in the hospital and I didn’t know — and I thought, ‘if I ever come back from this, I end up going back to music and I’m on stage and I get a first performance, I want it to be at the Grammys and I want it to be this song.’”
Super Bowl LIV is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm ET and will be broadcast on FOX.
