Web Exclusive: Survivors of Sandy Hook to sing at Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

(CNN/CBS) - More than two dozen students from Sandy Hook Elementary School are heading to New Orleans.  The kids from Connecticut will perform at super bowl XLVII at the Superdome Sunday.

They're scheduled to sing "America the Beautiful" just before kick-off.  The kids are survivors from a tragic shooting rampage at their school in December.  Twenty-six people died in the massacre, including 20 children.

A study out of Finland finds being single is not good for the heart.  Doctors say single people are about 60 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack.  They're also at a higher risk of dying from a heart problem.  Researchers aren't sure why but say married people tend to have healthier habits and are more likely to take medications regularly. 

This is not the type of number you want to hear.  Zimbabwe's finance minister says there's only $217 dollars left in the government's bank account -- leaving the nation in a state of paralysis.  That's despite the fact Zimbabwe sold almost $685-million dollars in diamonds last year.

The golden sponge cake is about to make a comeback.  Hostess has reportedly picked two investment firms to buy its twinkies and other snack cakes.  The deal is worth more than $400 million dollars.  The sweet announcement could come as soon as next week.
