National Poet Youth Laureate Amanda Gorman took the stage at the Super Bowl LV in order to honor three heroes who have helped their community and beyond during a very difficult year.
Gorman, 22, made headlines when she spoke at President Joe Biden‘s inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20, performing her poem “The Hill We Climb.” She became the youngest poet ever to speak at the transition of power.
On Feb. 7, she appeared during a pre-taped portion at the Super Bowl in a glam blue coat by Moschino to recite her poem “Chorus of the Captains” about America’s “real captains” of the Super Bowl. Her poem namechecked teacher Trimaine Davis, nurse Suzie Dorner and Marine veteran James Martin.
