Christian singer Victory Boyd, who has openly shared her refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine due to her faith, claims she could not perform the national anthem at an NFL game last week because of a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
The 20-year-old Grammy Award winner originally planned to make an appearance at the NFL season-opening game last Thursday between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys in Tampa Bay.
But according to The Epoch Times, the NFL’s senior director for media and entertainment events told Boyd’s father and manager, John Boyd, in an email that the league’s “Game Day Field Access Policy” requires the singer of the national anthem to be fully vaccinated.
“As I understand that Victory will not be fully vaccinated by the time of the Kickoff game, she would not have been able to comply with the terms of the Game Day Field Access Policy,” the email read.
Boyd said she relies on her Christian faith to guide her in her decision not to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
