A longtime member of Chiefs Kingdom will return to sing the national anthem for the team for the third time on Sunday.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist and ardent Chiefs fan, Melissa Etheridge, will sing the national anthem ahead of the Chiefs’ Week 3 game against the Chargers. While she’s singing the anthem the American Legion Post 213 Argentine Eagles are set to present the colors.

Etheridge is a Leavenworth, Kansas native and grew up rooting for the team. She last sang the national anthem when Kansas City faced the New England Patriots in the 2018 AFC title game. Prior to that, Etheridge sang the national anthem at the Chiefs’ 2017 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If you’ve got a great memory, you’ll know that both of those games were losses for Kansas City. It’s safe to say that Etheridge will be looking to bust that slump and see the Chiefs get into the win column while she’s in attendance.

Also joining in the pregame festivities is Randy Reid himself, comedian and actor Eric Stonestreet. The Kansas City, Kansas native will serve as the Week 3 Drum Honoree, banging the drum on the GEHA Drum Deck ahead of the game.

The Chiefs couldn’t have picked two better people to represent the Chiefs Kingdom and get the crowd pumped up for the game on Sunday. Both Etheridge and Stonestreet are passionate supporters of the team.
