The original Schuyler sisters from the Tony award-winning musical Hamilton performed America the Beautiful before the start of Super Bowl LI.

The trio  Jasmine Cephas Jones, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Phillipa Soo  added "and sisterhood" during the line "God shed his grace on thee/ And crown thy good with brotherhood/ From sea to shining sea!"

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda was clearly ecstatic seeing the original trio back together.

Soo starred as middle sister Eliza, the wife of Alexander Hamilton, and earned a Tony nomination for her role. Goldsberry played the eldest Angelica and nabbed a Tony Award last summer for her performance. And Cephas Jones completed the trio as youngest sister Peggy.

All three have departed the cast of Hamilton, so their performance was a special treat for fans.
