Pop superstar Pink will perform the national anthem for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Feb. 4, the league announced Monday.

The singer, born Alecia Beth Moore, has sold over 50 million albums worldwide. She’ll join Luke Bryan, Lady Gaga and Idina Menzel as recent anthem performers for the big game.

While kneeling during the anthem has seen a rise across the NFL over the past two years, no player has ever protested at the Super Bowl.

Fellow pop music titan Justin Timberlake will perform at halftime.
