“Frozen” star Idina Menzel will sing the national anthem.
Menzel has had a top-notch year, thanks to the success of “Frozen” and her worldwide hit “Let It Go.” Her Broadway show “If/Then” closes on March 22th.
Legend, too, has had a career-highlighting year. His song “All of Me” was one of 2014’s biggest hits, and he recently won a Golden Globe for his song with rapper Common, “Glory,” from the film “Selma.”
