PASADENA, Calif. (AP) If music was a football game, Lisa Fischer has already been a quarterback and scored game-winning touchdowns.
Fischer's discography includes a number of hits, including the chart-topping, Grammy-winning 1991 "How Can I Ease the Pain."
And yet the singer admitted to a bit of anxiety over performing the national anthem at Wednesday's Rose Bowl game.
Fischer said before a rehearsal that she's a "ball of fiery, happy nerves."
Fischer will appear with three of her co-stars from the film "20 Feet From Stardom," which documents the trials and triumphs of background singers.
But, for the Rose Bowl's Star-Spangled Banner, they'll be taking the leads.
