As expected, singers Jazmine Sullivan, 33, and Eric Church, 43, delivered an impressive, unifying performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” for the Super Bowl.

the game, in an interview with Apple Music, the 43-year-old entertainer opened up about joining forces with Sullivan to put on a memorable show.

“I’ve not met her yet. She may be the best singer. I was floored,” Church told Kelleigh Bannen of Apple Music.

 “I’m a fan. I’ve went in and listened to everything she did. And I had heard her name, but full disclosure, I had not listened.”

Initially, Church maintained that he would never sing the national anthem because he believed it was hard to do. 

“I’ve said this forever: ‘I will never ever sing the national anthem…’ it’s so hard. Except the Super Bowl,” he told Bannen, 39. “I’m not Chris Stapleton. I fully assumed they were never going to ask me.”

“My first response was ‘Mm-mm. I’m a stylist, not a vocalist,’” he added. “I heard it, and I thought, ‘That’s cool, that sounds like me.’”

However, after listening to Sullivan singing, he had a change of heart.

“I heard her, and I’m not missing a chance to sing with her. And that was it,” he says. “Once I heard her voice, I said, ‘Okay, I’m in.’”

In mid-January, the 33-year-old R&B singer shared with her Instagram followers that she will be performing the national anthem alongside Church.

“I’ll be in Tampa Bay with @ericchurchmusic to sing the National Anthem for Super Bowl LV!” Sullivan wrote. “Tune-in on Feb 7 to the Super Bowl on @cbstv Kick-Off Show at 6 PM ET #[email protected] 🏈.” 

Grammy-Award winner H.E.R.,23, also amazed viewers with a performance of “America the Beautiful,” just before the Super Bowl LV kickoff game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Seven college students died when a railing they were leaning against broke, sending them plummeting to the concrete floor below.

The tragic incident happened at the Public University of El Alto in Bolivia on Tuesday.

About 100 maskless students were protesting in a packed hallway outside a lecture hall where a tense meeting was being held.

Fights broke out and some of the students were jostling each other when the railing gave way.

Seven students were pronounced dead at the scene. Five students are in critical condition at a hospital.

Disturbing video footage, captured by a bystander showed the moment before the railing broke. A dozen students fell to the concrete floor while a few students were pulled to safety.

A female student in a blue blouse dangled precariously over the edge before her fellow students grabbed her shoes and pulled her back up.

Another female student fortunately landed on the floor just below where the railing broke.

An investigation has been ordered into the accident.

Engineering standards in the United States require balconies to withstand 100 pounds per square feet of load while railings must withstand 200 pounds of force at any point along the railing.

But construction projects are not up to code in third world countries.

Former NFL Player Kellen Winslow II Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison

Former NFL football player Kellen Winslow II was sentenced to 14 years in prison under a plea deal on Wednesday. He was convicted for multiple rapes and sexual offenses against five Southern California women. 

According to the New York Post, Winslow, 37, was convicted on charges of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, assault with intent to commit rape, indecent exposure, and lewd conduct in public. He will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. 

He appeared in court virtually at the hearing in San Diego Superior Court in Vista, California. At the advice of his attorneys, Winslow did not speak before his sentencing.

San Diego County Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman said Winslow could only be described with “two words, and that is sexual predator,” according to the outlet, and called his crimes “brazen.” Bowman also said that he preyed on vulnerable women, saying, “The vulnerability of the victims was no accident.”

The son of former San Diego Chargers Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow exposed himself to his 57-year-old-neighbor, who was gardening. He also performed a lewd act in front of a 77-year-old woman at a gym while concealing his ankle bracelet with a towel. 

The forcible rape involved a homeless Encinitas woman who was one of the four women who gave victim impact statements on Wednesday.

“It’s affecting my life every day and every night,” she said. “I don’t ever feel safe inside or outside. You brought so much damage to my life.”

All of the women who spoke described the emotional trauma they experienced due to the attacks and how it has impacted their lives.

But that jury failed to agree on other charges, including the alleged 2018 rape of a 54-year-old hitchhiker and the 2003 rape of an unconscious 17-year-old high school senior who went to a party with him when he was 19, according to The Post. Before he was retried on those charges, he pleaded guilty to raping the teen and to the sexual battery of the hitchhiker.

Last month, both sides agreed to drop the sexual battery charge down to assault with intent to commit rape. In doing so, the maximum sentence was reduced to 14 years from the 18 years Winslow initially faced.

At one point in his career, Winslow was one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL. A first-round pick, he played for the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, and the New York Jets. His last season playing football was in 2013.
