Amanda Gorman Becomes The First Poet To Ever Perform At The Super Bowl.



This year’s Super Bowl was filled with tons of #BlackGirlMagic—and poet Amanda Gorman was front and center. After wowing the country with her poem during the presidential inauguration, Amanda Gorman just took her talents to the Super Bowl where she became the first poet to ever perform.

In her short, but extraordinary career, 22-year-old poet Amanda Gorman has made historytwice within the last month. She became the youngest poet in history to perform at a presidential inauguration—and she just added to that by becoming the first-ever poet to perform at the Super Bowl.

Amanda Gorman’s star continues to rise, as her book publisher recently announced that it will print three million copies of her upcoming titles, which include her debut poetry collection and a picture book. Meanwhile, IMG Models signed Gorman and will represent her for fashion and beauty endorsements.

“We knew that in order to honor them properly — and all of those across the country that they represent — we needed the right words that would match the power of that moment, and there’s no one more perfectly suited to bring those words to the world than Amanda Gorman,” Matt Shapiro, the N.F.L.’s vice president of events strategy, said in a statement.
