Last year, the Super Bowl gave us Beyoncé. This year, it gave us Broadway’s version of Destiny’s Child.
Renee Elise Goldsberry, Jasmine Cephas Jones and Phillipa Soo — the actresses who originated the roles of Angelica, Eliza and Peggy Schuyler in the hit musical Hamilton — were reunited Sunday in Houston during Fox’s live Super Bowl pregame show for a glorious performance of “America the Beautiful.”
With tight harmonies and soaring vocals, Hamilton’s holy trinity served up a solid tribute to the US of A — not that we expected anything less. With these Broadway stars at the mic, this performance was a guaranteed slam dunk from the start. (That’s a football term, right?)
What was a surprise, however, was the ladies’ addition of “sisterhood” to the lyrics. (No complaints here!)
