On Tuesday, the NFL announced that Chris Stapleton, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Sheryl Lee Ralph will deliver performances on Feb. 12 ahead of the big game at State Farm Stadium in Arizona.

Grammy-winning country star Stapleton, 44, will sing the national anthem, while legendary R&B producer Babyface, 64, is set to perform "America the Beautiful," and Emmy-winning Abbott Elementary actress Ralph, 66, will deliver a rendition of "Lift Every Voice and Sing."

Earlier this month, the 34-year-old newly announced Oscar nominee released an official teaser trailer for her performance, which features her as a silhouette in a large, empty room. She then begins to walk forward and takes in comments from her fans.

Finally, the spotlight shines directly on Rihanna — whos wearing a green furry coat, a black outfit underneath and thick silver jewelry — and she motions for silence before her 2016 track "Needed Me" begins to play.

Appearing alongside each vocalist to perform in American Sign Language on behalf of the National Association of the Deaf will be Oscar-winning CODA actor Troy Kotsur for the national anthem, Arizona Navajo Nation member Colin Denny for "America the Beautiful" and performer Justina Miles for "Lift Every Voice and Sing" as well as Rihannas halftime show.

Additionally, during the national anthem, the U.S. Navy will conduct a flyover of State Farm Stadium featuring women aviators to commemorate 50 years of women flying in the service.
