EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Queen Latifah has given two high-profile performances in the last week. She married 33 couples at the Grammy Awards last Sunday, then visited East Rutherford, N.J. to sing a relatively relaxed version of "America the Beautiful" at the end of Fox's Super Bowl pre-game show.

Latifah was joined by a children's choir she found on the Internet -- the New Jersey Youth Chorus.

American soprano Renée Fleming took the field shortly afterward to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner." Her album, Poèmes, won a 2013 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo.

The two performers met up later before Bruno Mars' halftime show.
