HOUSTON – Houston is heading to Miami for Super Bowl LIV — sort of.

While the Texans may have fallen short, the Bayou City will still be well represented at the nation’s biggest sporting event.

Houston-born gospel singer, record producer and radio host, Yolanda Adams will be front and center on the field come game day.

Adams shared a tweet officially announcing that she would be performing America The Beautiful at the Super Bowl.

The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs will face off Feb. 2 starting at 5:30 p.m. for the title of 2020 Super Bowl Champs.

Adams won’t be the only way Houston will be represented on Super Bowl Sunday.

An initiative by Lowe’s called Lowe’s Hometown will feature “a first of its kind interactive NFL-themed neighborhood featuring custom built dwellings representing all 32 NFL teams, Texans fans will have a home at the Super Bowl.”

The dwellings will be located inside Super Bowl Experience, decked out in team logos, colors and characteristics of the team’s region and fan traditions.

“Entitled ‘Texas Takeoff,’ the Texans dwelling features a rocket ship flying before a starry, cosmic sky. The Taurus constellation is annotated in the sky, which also includes shooting stars, satellites and planets. The Texas flag flies proudly from the top of the spaceship,” the group wrote in a press release.
