Singer-songwriter Demi Lovato will sing the National Anthem prior to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor main event Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Lovato is a GRAMMY-nominated artist with one of the world’s most powerful voices on-and-off the stage. This will be her first time singing the anthem at a boxing event in her career.
With more than 6 billion global single streams and nine platinum and multi-platinum singles to her name, Lovato recently released “Sorry Not Sorry,” which has quickly become one of 2017’s biggest hits.
The 25-year-old recording artist is no stranger to combat sports. Lovato is a frequent attendee at UFC events. Also, she was romantically linked to former UFC Middlweight champion Luke Rockhold and Bellator fighter Guilherme ‘Bomba’ Vasconcelos in 2016.
Lovato’s hit single “Confidence” also features a shout out to former UFC women’s champion Ronda Rousey.
