Lady Gaga will introduce the most-watched event in the world on Sunday when she sings "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl 50. Actress Marlee Matlin will accompany her by performing American Sign Language during the national anthem, according to The Associated Press. The performance will take place in Santa Clara, California's Levi's Stadium, where the Denver Broncos will play the Carolina Panthers.

The Super Bowl, which will air on CBS and include halftime performances by Coldplay and Beyonce, is the latest event in what has been a prolific start to 2016 for Gaga. Last month, she took home the Golden Globe for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel, with the singer already lining up a busy February.

Gaga will perform a medley of David Bowie songs in tribute to the late singer-songwriter during the Grammys broadcast on February 15, when the ceremony will air live on CBS. The set will consist of three or four tunes and run up to seven minutes long. Chic leader Nile Rodgers, who produced Bowie's Let's Dance, is serving as musical director for the performance. Gaga is also nominated in the Best Song Written for Visual Media, along with co-songwriter Diane Warren, for the song "'Til It Happens to You," which appeared in the film The Hunting Ground.

The Artpop singer will also sing during the Academy Awards on February 28th. Gaga and Warren are nominated for "'Til It Happens to You" and will perform the tune.
