For Super Bowl LII, Pink was given the honor of singing the National Anthem. She belted out the song, nailing her performance despite struggling with the flu. Pink and her family are from Pennsylvania, not far from Philadelphia. You can guess who they rooted for on Sunday!
Pink posted this on Instagram this photo and caption of her brother: “Yep. That’s my brother. Singing the Eagles fight song on his flight to Super Bowl. He’s not messing around people”
The singer is also from a military family. Her father served in Vietnam; her brother is Lieutenant Colonel Jason Moore. He did something the world loves him for a while his sister sang the anthem.
Before Pink took to the field, she wrote of what an incredible honor it was for her to have this opportunity because it comes once in a lifetime:
Trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear! And here we are. I’ve arrived at another one of my dreams which is slowly becoming a sort of nightmare. I will tell you, this is one of the biggest honors of my life, singing this song in front of my family, my military family, my dad and brother and step mama and family and the world. And the EAGLES!?!?! I promise I will do my best, as I always do. As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. If it’s a contest, babies, you win. #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit
It was during her performance when Pink’s brother responded with love for his sister and country. He gave a salute. carey Hart, Pink’s husband posted this photo captioned.
Pink’s fans and her brother said they couldn’t imagine how pround their parents must be of both their kids. they expressed this sentiment on social media.
Another fan gave her props for nailing the anthem while feeling under the weather. Because really, singing while sick really does suck:
Pink got to watch the game and half time show with her family. They got to enjoy the eagles defeat the Patriots.
I am beyond proud of this woman. The roller coaster that she went through this last week with getting sick and losing her voice would have broke any ordinary person. She laced up her boots, got through a 90 minute set Friday night, and fucking killed the super bowl today. Oh and sang live by the way. She is the hardest working in show business and i couldn’t be more proud of her. You fucking rule, baby 😘 @pink
