While big stars like Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan planned to rock the stadium during Super Bowl LV, it was Brother Warren L. “Wawa” Snipe (Mu-Iota, Gallaudet University, ’94) that stole the pregame show and even trended across the internet! Brother Snipe performed the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” during the pregame of the Super Bowl on February 7th, and during his performance, he captured the attention of so many across the nation. 

In an interview with the Washington Post, Brother Snipe said, “When you’ve worked so hard on your craft, giving everything you’ve got for your community and they ask you to do the Super Bowl, to me that’s an honor and some recognition of your hard work.” 

Brother Snipe not only used his stage to showcase his hard work but also to help others see into the eyes of the deaf culture, especially within the music industry. Brother Snipe is a rapper and actor within the deaf community and has recently released an album titled, Deaf: So What! His integration of hip-hop into the national anthem brought to life the signs and made for an unforgettable performance.

Whether it was his contagious smile, energetic motions, or the hours of hard work and preparation he had, Brother Snipe outdid himself! Kappa Sigma is honored to call you a Brother. AEKDB!
