On Friday, January 26, Budweiser unveiled their much-anticipated Super Bowl LII commercial featuring tearjerker visuals highlighting their disaster relief efforts backed by vocals from 5-time Grammy Award nominee, Skylar Grey.

Her stirring rendition of the 1961 Ben E. King classic, “Stand By Me,” created and performed just for Budweiser, can be heard as visuals of Anheuser-Busch employees donating emergency drinking water in response to natural disasters appear on the screen.

Budweiser, no stranger to the Super Bowl stage, is proud to turn the spotlight on its employees, who together over the past 30 years have helped provide over 79 million cans of clean drinking water in response to natural disasters as part of the Anheuser-Busch emergency water program. This year, the company will also announce its ongoing commitment for natural disaster relief by adding a second brewery to its emergency water program.
