Watch LA Native Amanda Gorman Recite 'Chorus Of The Captains' At The Super Bowl
Los Angeles native Amanda Gorman made history yesterday as the first person to perform an original poem at the Super Bowl.
Gorman delivered her poem "Chorus of the Captains," as a tribute to three people on the front lines of the pandemic: educator Trimaine Davis, nurse manager Suzie Dorner and Marine veteran James Martin.
"Today we honor our three captains
for their actions and impact
in a time of uncertainty and need,
They've taken the lead,
exceeding all expectations and limitations,
uplifting their communities and neighbors,
as leaders, healers and educators."
Gorman also made history in January as the youngest person to ever recite a poem at a U.S. presidential inauguration.
Although her Super Bowl appearance was planned before the inauguration, football fans might not have been as happy about her performance as Inauguration-watchers. See the comments on the NFL's Twitter post.
