That's how you start a Super Bowl.
The students, members of the school that was the scene of a mass shooting in December, gave a great performance, which you can watch above.
"We have come to New Orleans to represent the Sandy Hook Family and the community of Newtown, Connecticut," the students said in a statement. "Our wish is to demonstrate to America and the world that, 'We are Sandy Hook and We Choose Love.'"
The students sang the first verse by themselves, then were joined by Hudson for the rest of the song. Even the players and coaches on the sidelines seemed touched by the performance.
After that, it was all just a game. The real MVPs were on the pregame show.
