The National Football League has canceled Grammy Award winner Victory Boyd’s scheduled National Anthem performance after she refused the coronavirus vaccine for religious reasons.
In an email shared with The Epoch Times, NFL Senior Director for Media and Entertainment Events Seth Dudowsky to Victory’s father and manager, John Boyd, on August 31 that her vaccination status will make ineligible to perform the National Anthem.
“As I understand that Victory will not be fully vaccinated by the time of the Kickoff game, she would not have been able to comply with the terms of the Game Day Field Access Policy,” said Dudowsky. “And as a result, we, unfortunately, will not be able to invite Victoria to perform the national anthem at this year’s Kickoff game.”
Victory was slated to perform at the NFL’s Sept.
