Poet Amanda Gorman is officially taking the world by storm after she performed her moving poem at President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The National Youth Poet Laureate made such a big impression she’s already been invited to honor pandemic heroes at the upcoming Super Bowl.

The 22-year-old has agreed to write and recite a new poem that will honor teacher Trimaine Davis, nurse Suzie Dorner, and Marine Corps veteran James Martin.

All three have been widely praised for helping others during the height of coronavirus pandemic and were chosen for the moment by the NFL.

League officials made the exciting announcement on Wednesday as they stated: ‘The recitation of the poem will air nationally on CBS and be featured in-stadium.​’

That isn’t the only exciting update in the world of the talented writer after she recited her powerful poem, The Hill We Climb, last week.
