Jazmine Sullivan proved she’s the real World Series champion after her national anthem performance.

The “Heaux Tales” singer performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Game 5 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Thursday. Her stunning rendition of the anthem sent viewers at home into a frenzy.

“Jazmine Sullivan really sang tf outta the national anthem,” one Twitter user wrote. “Like, man. That’s a voice!”

Another person on Twitter wrote: “Jazmine Sullivan just CRUSHED that National Anthem!”

Some viewers of her performance even compared the two-time Grammy winner’s performance to Whitney Houston’s iconic rendition of the anthem.

Sullivan has delivered an awe-inspiring performance of the national anthem before.

The R&B singer memorably performed the song as a duet with country artist Eric Church ahead of the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa, Florida.

Sullivan paid tribute to Houston before her performance last year by wearing a tracksuit during a rehearsal that was similar to the one the late icon wore when she sang the anthem for the 1991 Super Bowl.

The Houston Astros and the Philadelphia Phillies are set to face off for Game 6 of the World Series on Saturday night. Meanwhile, fans of Sullivan will likely continue to celebrate their champion.
