"I can't really think about it until it is over. It is too much! There is no way I would be able to sing," she said. "I know it, but it is the type of thing doesn't matter how many times you sing it. And the biggest fear is making sure you sing it right, and sing it correctly.
The singer added, "I am practicing. I have the tour, the Super Bowl and National Anthem. I am rehearsing right now. I feel like I love this song. Of course it is really emotional and nothing is more emotional than when singing it for a cause, and I know -- the day after tomorrow.
"I don't want to think about it! I love the song because the melody is so beautiful, and you have so many choices. I want to keep it really elegant.”
