TWENTY-SIX CHILDREN from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown will sing at the Super Bowl in New Orleans on Sunday in honour of their 26 classmates who were shot dead last month.

The choir will perform ‘America the Beautiful’ just before Alicia Keys sings the national anthem.

Since 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother in their home before driving to the school to carry out the massacre, the NFL has supported the school by giving them charitable donations, moments of silence before games and a black-ribbon logo on helmets.

Earlier this month on ABC’s Good Morning America the children sang ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, which is now available to download on Amazon and iTunes to raise money for the United Way of Western Connecticut and Newtown Youth Academy.

Beyoncé will also perform at the Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers game.
