Tinashe to perform "America the Beautiful" before WrestleMania 33
STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE announced today that platinum-selling singer, songwriter, producer and entertainer Tinashe will perform “America the Beautiful,” kicking off WrestleMania 33 on Sunday, April 2 in front of a sold-out crowd at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. and live around the world on WWE Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
“I’m excited to perform America the Beautiful at this year’s WrestleMania,” Tinashe said. “Being part of WWE’s biggest event of the year is an honor, and I look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando.”
“Tinashe joins the likes of renowned artists Ray Charles, John Legend, Aretha Franklin, Nicole Scherzinger, and most recently Fifth Harmony, who have opened WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza,” said Neil Lawi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, WWE Music Group. “Tinashe will continue this great tradition and we look forward to her performance at this year’s WrestleMania.”
Yesterday, Tinashe released her brand-new single “Flame.” The track, which was produced by Sir Nolan, is available at all digital retail and streaming partners.
The release of “Flame” follows on the heels of Tinashe’s critically-acclaimed “Nightride” project, released late last year. The 14-track project, a companion piece to her upcoming studio album, includes stand-out track “Company.” The song recently received an attention-grabbing video clip, a full-on dance assault all done in one take.
