PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Singer Alicia Keys said she's "incredibly excited" about performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl in New Orleans next month.

"I'm very excited to perform at the Super Bowl," she told The Hollywood Reporter Friday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. "It's really gonna set the game off. I feel really excited about doing that, and it's my first time really doing that -- the national anthem that really starts the whole game off so I'm incredibly excited."

The performance will be part of what Keys said is "gonna be a good 2013," which includes the release of the indie film "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete," on which she serves as executive producer and composer.

The film premiered Thursday at Sundance and stars Anthony Mackie, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks.
