ATLANTA - As we all know, Atlanta's R&B superstar Usher will be the halftime act at Super Bowl 58 on Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and the singer, along with Apple Music, released a new video last Friday to tease the performance.
The trailer is titled "30 Years in the Making" and highlights his iconic song "Yeah!" featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris.
It opens with a church choir singing "Peace up, A-town down" and features clips of people skating, young Usher in the studio, children playing in the streets of Atlanta, the Jonesboro High School Majestic Marching Cardinals marching band, a man playing the flute in the subway station, Usher performing at concerts, and LeBron James singing "Yeah."
Usher recently finished his second residency in Las Vegas. The first residency began in 2021 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The second residency in the Dolby Live Theater at Park MGM opened in July 2022 and ended in early December 2023. Both residencies were highly successful and were attended y numerous celebrities and famous athletes.
The halftime show will be produced by the NFL, Apple Music and Jay-Z's Roc Nation.
