Miley Cyrus is set to perform for American healthcare workers who have been fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
The popstar will be singing to vaccinated healthcare workers at the Super Bowl's TikTok Tailgate, which will be held just before the National Football Association match.
Tailgating is a time-honoured tradition at American football games and the NFL are dedicating this year's one to all those who have been battling the Covid-19 pandemic in the nation's hospitals.
Miley Cyrus took to social media to announce that she would be performing at the event in February. Cyrus is scheduled to perform from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida in front of 7 500 healthcare workers who have already received both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
E! News reported on a statement from the NFL commissioner which said:
"These dedicated healthcare workers continue to put their own lives at risk to serve others, and we owe them our ongoing gratitude. We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognise these true American heroes.
"This is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccination and appropriate health practices, including wearing masks in public settings."
