The multihyphenate Queen Latifah snapped with her performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” at the Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants game on Sunday, Sept. 10.
The singer donned an all-white suit and silk press for her performance, hitting all the right notes and showcasing her beautiful alto voice.
Her performance doubled as a 9/11 tribute.
Red sparks flying in the air and a camera zooming into the Statue of Liberty enhanced the song’s emotional aspect.
Social media commended Latifah for her performance, with many being surprised at the Girls Trip actress’ abilities as a musician, not realizing that she has been in the music game for years. In fact, Queen Latifah is one of the trailblazers for the women in hip hop movement, releasing hits in the ’90s like “U.N.I.T.Y.,” “Dance for Me,” “It’s Alright” and “Ladies First.”
I didn’t know she had it like that.

Even if you don’t pay attention to every queen latifah project, she transcended just being a rapper decades ago. Nothing she’s doing should be shocking at this point.

It is a true testament to her multi hyphenation that so many people didn’t know Queen Latifah can sing.
The question you really should be asking is if there is anything Queen Latifah can’t do.

See history is so important because why people say they didn’t know Queen Latifah was a rapper

I wish y’all would just admit y’all are ignorant in regards to musical knowledge instead of trying to diminish a legends’ career to make shady quips.
Singing has been intertwined with Queen Latifah’s artistry since the very beginning of her career. https://t.co/TZpmC3Ed1E
