From WWE, for those who may not be aware:
“Chloe x Halle are a dynamic sister duo, known for their angelic voices and soulful performances,” said Neil Lawi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, WWE Music Group. “WWE is thrilled to have them open WrestleMania with their rendition of ‘America the Beautiful,’ a role that has been filled with renowned artists in the past, including Ray Charles, John Legend, Aretha Franklin, Nicole Scherzinger, Fifth Harmony and Tinashe. This will mark the first time WWE has had a duet performance of this song.”
Chloe x Halle rose to fame after their rendition of Beyoncé’s own “Pretty Hurts” caught the attention of the mogul’s Parkwood Entertainment imprint and signed them in 2014. Since then, Chloe x Halle have garnered millions of views around the world on their self-titled YouTube channel, been featured on Michelle Obama’s charity single, “This Is for My Girls,” with Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Kelly Rowland and Janelle Monae, appeared in Beyoncé’s visual tour de force, Lemonade, and released The Two of Us, brand new music mostly written and produced by the duo.
