Chloe x Halle set to perform America The Beautiful at the Super Bowl… amid Travis Scott halftime show controversy with Colin Kaepernick

They’re a Grammy-nominated duo who have opened for Beyonce.

And Chloe x Halle will sing in front of millions come February 3 as the pair will take the stage to perform America The Beautiful before the 53rd Super Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia, according to the NFL.

The Grown-ish stars will join Gladys Knight for performances before the game amid controversy that rapper Travis Scott spoke with Colin Kaepernick before agreeing to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, Variety claimed.

But soon after that article was set live, Colin’s friend, Ebro Darden, a 97 radio host, tweeted, ‘Kap did not approve this bulls***! Get the f*** outta here.’

Then Kaepernick retweeted Ebro’s statement and his girlfriend Nessa then said: ‘FACTS @EBRO!!! THEY NEED TO STOP LYING.’

TMZ later cleared up the controversy with a source saying that Travis and Colin did speak but the singer never asked for permission.

‘Colin doesn’t tell Travis what he can and can’t do. That’s Travis’ decision,’ the insider said. It was also alleged that Colin relayed he was not comfortable with Travis’ choice. 

Scott has faced criticism for agreeing to join Maroon 5 on stage at the flagship NFL game next month.

Many have said he shouldn’t perform in protest for the former San Francisco 49ers player – who was exiled from the NFL for his #TakeAKnee movement, which saw him and several other players refuse to stand during the national anthem at games in protest against police brutality and racial injustice.
