‘I’ll be completely rattled. As much as I’m going to try to be comfortable with it, I know I’m gonna be nervous, because you think about how many people you’re actually performing for and what that moment means.’

Country crooner Chris Stapleton will sing the national anthem, which is fine with the R&B legend, who said America The Beautiful is a better fit for him. 

‘It’s really a beautiful song… that melody fits me a lot more.’

The Soul Train Award winner recalled working with the Diamonds artist in the past explaining, ‘I think I had her in the studio once for a charity record we did called Standup for Cancer, and she came in there and sang and blew me away.’

And he’s hopeful of a future collaboration. ‘That would be a dream to go back in there with her one day.’
