Singer Pink Has Flu, Will Still Sing National Anthem At Super Bowl

MINNEAPOLIS (CBSNewYork/CBS News) -- Singer Pink won't be missing out on the chance of a lifetime, even if she does have the flu.

The pop star is scheduled to perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl in Minneapolis on Sunday.

She announced on Instagram Saturday morning she caught the widespread virus and blames it on her kids, Willow Sage and Jameson.

Pink calls the opportunity to sing at the Super Bowl one of the biggest honors of her life, and promises to give it her all.

42 states states saw high levels of activity last week and so far this season, CBS News reports 53 children have died.

If you get the flu, antiviral medications can help, it's recommended that you start them as soon as possible. A flu shot is suggested for everyone 6 months and older. Getting one may make the symptoms not as severe if you end up with the flu.
