Whitney Houston Dies at 48

12 02 2012

Sadly, Whitney Houston passed away at the age of 48 yesterday. In honor of this great singer, here is her rendition of the national anthem at Super Bowl XXV from 1991. This stands as one of the greatest performances of our national anthem. In a time when singers like to add many flourishes and changes to their arrangement, Houston didn’t make the song be about her – she simply let her voice beautifully belt out our nation’s most prized song.

Rest in peace Whitney Houston.
