Marlee Matlin Signs The National Anthem At Super Bowl 50
Actress Marlee Matlin signed the National Anthem at tonight’s 50th Super Bowl. This was the second time she signed for the Super Bowl.
In 2007, Marlee performed the “Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XLI in Miami between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears.
The actress has been deaf since she was 18 months old but didn’t let that stop her. Matlin won an Oscar for her performance in the 1986 movie Children of a Lesser God and for Best Actress in a leading role.
Unfortunately her work wasn’t shown as much as her counterpart, Lady Gaga.
Currently, Matlin is known for her roles on Switched At Birth, The L Word and The West Wing.
