Ahead of Sunday night’s Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, Mickey Guyton graced Sofi Stadium in L.A. to perform a soothing and angelic rendition of the national anthem. The four-time Grammy-nominated country singer was backed by a small choir, that was dressed in all white, as well as a pianist.
The “Love My Hair” artist wowed in a long-sleeve blue floor-length gown, complete with a round neckline, structural shoulders and a belt that wrapped around her waist. What’s more, her ensemble featured all Black designers. While Sergio Hudson made the dress, Guyton completed the look with blue Siren pumps by designer label Kendall Miles, which were detailed in patent leather and featured cut-outs.
Founder of the Kendall Miles brand, Kendall Reynolds, told FN, “This moment was so special to us because of how intentional Mickey and her team was about including us in this big moment.”
The musician parted her hair to the side and styled her dark stresses in soft loose curls. She let her dress do all of the talking as she opted for minimal accessories and neutral glam.
Guyton is one of the second consecutive country singer’s to perform the national anthem. Last year, Jasmine Sullivan sang the “Star-Spangled Banner” with Eric Church.
