Over the years, Morgan State University’s Choir has performed around the world.  They even sang for President Obama in 2015.

Their next gig was a big one, and it was right at home.  The HBCU choir sang the National Anthem before Sunday’s AFC Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.

“It’s the closest we will ever get to being a rockstar like Beyoncé or Taylor Swift,” said Dr. Eric Conway, the Morgan State University Choir Director.

Choir member Jah Hughes shared the thrill of performing in such an electrifying atmosphere.

“You get to, like, see everyone surrounding you, and they’re all cheering, so you really feel the encouragement of the space,” Hughes said.

Conway, has led the Morgan State University Choir for over two decades. The choir has performed all over the world and on every continent except for Antarctica, but Sunday’s performance was special.

“What an honor. They could have asked anyone in the world, but they asked the Morgan State University choir,” Conway said.

Sunday’s game provided the choir with an unprecedented audience, as they performed in front of over 70,000 fans at the stadium and tens of millions of viewers at home.

It was a moment of immense pride for both Morgan State University and the city of Baltimore.
