After reciting a fiery poem at Joe Biden’s inauguration in the United States, poet Amanda Gorman made a second appearance at the 55th edition of the Super Bowl on Sunday, this time sending out a message in honor of the heroes of the pandemic.
At 22, Gorman is the first poet in National Football League (NFL) history to perform at America’s most-watched sporting event.
In his original poem, Chorus of the Captains, she praises three frontline workers fighting the pandemic.
Suzie Dorner, a nurse in the Tampa Bay Intensive Care Unit;
Trimaine Davis, a teacher who went out of his way to offer classes to students from less fortunate communities;
James Martin, a Navy veteran who led the Wounded Warrior Project to end isolation.
“While we honor them, it is they who honor us every day,” she brilliantly articulated under the felt of dramatic music.
Make history … twice!
In addition to being the first person to deliver a poem to the Superbowl, Amanda Gorman is also the youngest poet to perform in U.S. history at the President’s inauguration ceremony on January 20, 2021.
Selected under the recommendation of First Lady Jill Biden, the Havard graduate delivered her poem with strength and courage The Hill We Climb, a message of unity to the American nation.
“We are going to bring this wounded world to a wonderful world … There will always be light, only if we are brave enough to see it. If only we are brave enough to be it, ”she recited to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Following this speech, she caused a sensation and all eyes were on her.
On Twitter, she claims she received her Super Bowl invitation before being warmly greeted at Biden’s inauguration.
