Grace Weber, singer of the Packers anthem, prepares herself in a walk-in freezer

Grammy-winning songwriter and recording artist Grace Weber, a Wauwatosa native now based in Los Angeles, prepares to sing the national anthem during Saturday’s Green Bay Packers playoff game in perfect fashion – repeating in a walk-in freezer.

The wind chill factor is expected to feel 2 below zero when the Packers and San Francisco 49ers kick off at 7:15 p.m. Saturday in the Divisional Round of the NFC Playoffs at Lambeau Field.

“I realized I really didn’t know what it was like to sing in freezing temperatures,” Weber said in a video she posted to Instagram. “So, I decided that we would rehearse in a freezer.”

Weber performs a few bars of the melody in the freezer in the video.

Weber released a new album, “A Beautiful Space,” last summer with the creative team at Chance the Rapper. The R&B artist was previously signed to Capitol Records.

Weber won a Grammy Award in 2017 for his writing on “All We Got,” a song that appeared on Chance the Rapper’s winner for Best Rap Album, “Coloring Book.”

She called the opportunity to sing at Lambeau a “literal dream come true”.
