Anita Baker Sings Anthem At NFC Championships: Look + Listen

On Sunday (1.29) football super fan Anita Baker performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” ahead of the NFC championship between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers.

Despite being a Detroit native, the legendary r+b/pop singer was asked to sing the National Anthem by Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, who, earlier in the 2022/2023 season that part of his post-victory routine was listening to Baker’s music.

“I put my Anita Baker on and take this flight home, and try to enjoy my teammates,” said Hurts after an Eagles win in Chicago in December.

Taking to her Twitter account Baker acknowledged the shoutout and continued to root for the Eagles on social media throughout this season.

Three years since her “farewell tour,” Baker is revving up for a productive 2023 that includes the promise of new music as well as a 15-date trek that starts on February 11.
