The concert, which also featured Cardinals alumni, cheerleaders, mascot Big Red and Challenger the Bald Eagle from the American Eagle foundation, began at 6:30 p.m. at Fowler Park.

Chenoweth is also slated to sing the national anthem at Thursday's Cardinals game against the Seattle Seahawks, which will air on 12 News.
