(Newser) – Twenty-six Sandy Hook Elementary School students are preparing to sing "America the Beautiful" in the Super Bowl pregame show. The performance will air live on CBS, right before the national anthem, USA Today reports. The kids and their families will be flown to New Orleans this week. The performance follows extended NFL support in the wake of the tragedy: moments of silence were held, money was raised, and players wore "SHES" stickers on their helmets.
