Super Bowl 2014 was treated to an anthem that was like no other. Renee Fleming, the famed soprano, delivered an operatic version of the "Star Spangled Banner" at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. In doing so, she was perfection while hitting all the high notes and while giving power to this legendary start to any athletic event.

That said, on Feb. 2, the national anthem was made even more important since this was the first time this song was sung by an opera singer. As backup to Renee Fleming, who sang live, a recording by the New Jersey Orchestra and three dozens singers from military choirs helped her out.

During her ace delivery, his Super Bowl anthem singer was dressed to acknowledge the seriousness of her job, standing on the field in a lovely gown accented by an ivory sash. It was no surprise that this accomplished artist was correct in every way as she has become an American Icon, often being dubbed The People's Diva.

And so, as Super Bowl anthem singer Renee Fleming rocked her operatic version of the "Star Spangled Banner" after Queen Latifah rocked "America the Beautiful," the game began in earnest for 2014. Stay tuned.
