Malkin reports that Hudson will sing the national anthem at the SuperBowl in Tampa on Feb. 1.

Hudson previously sang the anthem to positive reviews in August at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

Hudson has not performed or made any public appearances since her family tragedy in October.

Rumors have been dismissed that Hudson was tol perform at Tuesday's inauguration in Washington, D.C., adding that an appearance at the MusicCares tribute to Neil Diamond the night before the Grammys, which will air Feb. 8, is still up in the air.

Hudson is up for four Grammys for her self-titled album, including best R&B album, best female R&B vocal performance, best R&B song for "Spotlight" and best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals for her duet with Fantasia, "I'm His Only Woman."
