Mychael Corinthos

I think this version is even better than the Superbowl version. No one can ever sing like her. I miss her like crazy
Ginnie Mae Odums
Still gives me chills. A Voice Straight From Heaven!
Weena Bus Company
aside from beautiful voice, she's really good-looking & charming..
John Palermo
Not one so get that has ever lived on this planet could touch her. Many are talented but Whitney was gifted. That's a fact!! It's sad to see the uh so called talent *cough* attention starved disasters like today id name names but I think people who know true talent know who I'm referring to...

How to sing? Just watch this performance and you know your goal.
tashan patterson
how can a person stand still like that while slaying notes like that she is indeed the greatest of all time
It sounds almost identical to the original one during Super Bowl except she sang it in a slightly lower pitch. Still, the fact that she HAD to do this (according to that Rickey Minor interview on Access Hollywood) to shut naysayers up is sad. Nobody should ever have to prove anything to anyone else. The judgers in society, I tell ya. You know? The same ones who don't want to be judged.

sounds even better than the recorded version. whitney your the best in my eyes. # 1
Autumn Rose
The way she hits that bridge tho!
lol i this is so late but the comment about the one person who hates this song is Beyonce was funny as hell.
This was recorded live for the troops.. They even brought the key down a half step.. The original recording was taped for the Superbowl.. They taped the majority of all of those because they're so widely televized... If there is a mishap with sound, or playback they leave the mic on.. Its just a way to make sure the production goes off without a bobble.. This was absolutely live.. Let's not forget, artists in the 80s and 90s were not privy to software that is used today to fix vocals in studios or live performances... If she recorded it one time, this is the proof that she was able to do the exact same thing

NOBODY has ever sung the anthem like that before, or since ... miss you Whitney
Angus Robertson
I love that in this concert she sang it live to crush all those criticisms of her lip-syncing it at the Super Bowl. She just proves she can do it. Like at 1:59 she holds it a lot longer than she did at the super bowl. Well done whitney

For any of those "She ain't sing Live ..yahyahyah.." Here you have it.

This video quadrupled in length for me because I kept rewinding every part several times. Incredible
truly "the voice"
Bianca Polo
She knew she was bad. My goodness her gift
Peter Tj
Lypoed or Live , it was still her voice no autotune
Concerned Customer
This is better than super bowl
Peter Tj
Lypsinc my ads, it was her iconic voice alright
Sean Grandison
Whitney was a living American monument in voice. No one could ever sing this like this probably for another 100 years!
Kathy Reed
She knocked it out of the Universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her voice.... Geez!!!! ❤
diva doll
linda jones
Truly touched by God! That is pure talent from the Divine...
Bianca Polo
Keep in mind the Super Bowl recording was ONE take . That’s insane
Phoenix G
This still a better rendition then the rest
Singers try to bring the soul and power of Whitney to their singing, but they end up overdoing it and look ridiculous. This is how you do it!

My dear fallen song bird, you will always be in my heart. I love all the vocal divas, but no one could ever touch my heart like Whitney Houston. Yes she was better than all the rest, but she is more than that. She blessed the world with a standard that no one has been able to touch.soul singer#1
Bianca Polo
I wish she would have sang it a key higher but o welk
Fariel Gazelle
no one's saying couldn't sing it live. they're saying she didn't sing it live. we know she can sing the national anthem live, just not as perfect as what was heard at the 1991 super bowl
Tan D
Truthfully to say, when I first listen to this song live from her I never know it is the US national anthem until years later I listened and found many singers sang this. I always thought as a non-US citizen the song as hers until I knew how great she renders this song until it looks like her own song and while I look for so many great singers singing their own rendition makes me think theirs are not even close to what Whitney did, even Mariah Carey. If super bowl version is the best, this definitely be the second and the third is not even gonna close to this second rank. Truthfully love how Whitney never sing the same way in almost every live she did. I can even recognise most of her live performance of the same song because it was simply too distinct.
Nobody compares to Whitney
tashan patterson
i know its the national anthem and you arent supposed to move but i would have been able to contain myself ahh with the way she slayed probably would have screamed😂
*мαяιlуи *
For all those that even had the temerity to say fuk all about her superbowl performance...legend ☺️🌟🧡
Mohsin Shaikh
Whitney was the best and others still need sum rest to even get near to her 😅
What a loss to the world of such talent. Awesome.

Anyone notice the solider holding the flag looked like he was gonna tear up?

weeping this i s amazing

This is the video they should put on the jumbo-trons at the ballgames! No competition for Whitney
Tim Gill
IMHO Whit holds, & always will, the title for the 2 best performances of all time of our Natl’ Anthem. This one & the one at the Super Bowl‼️😄

This is nowhere near the Star Spangled banner she Lipsynced. Props though, she sang it live here.
Wandy Lee
1:30 -----> A little bit rough from her voice there, it proves 100% that it was sung live.. That's all..
Jermaine Bullock
@ Ingrid battle, And You have said It All!! And You Summed It All Up Perfectly !! To me Whitney was A Supernatural, And You'll Never See It displayed like that Ever again, In any shape or form, in this lifetime~~~
B. Berya
U was the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest ! and still the one!
B. Berya
I agree....100%!
ingrid battle
Yes it is. And this version is BETTER than the Super Bowl version. Whitney is the voice. Look at the way her vocal cords rivets as she sings. She has trained her vocal muscles to sing like that. She did that and no one can and will do it better. It was a mixture of soul, angelic, and pure vocal perfection.
Sandy West
God's gift to the world for just a little while.
ingrid battle
Whitney's singing technique is unparalleled to no one's. The way her lip quivers and her vocal cords in her neck moves like it's vibrating. You don't see this in any other singing. Whitney has rare talent that was cultivated, honed mastered by her mom. This is why no one comes close. They can't. She was one of a kind. Truly custom designed by our Heavenly Father.
uhhmm see really didnt lip sync it....her mom said that they wanted her to record a "SAFETY TAPE"...to play during the halftime performance and she did.....but she at the last minute decided to sing 100% LIVE!!!....this was said by Cissy Houston Whitney's Mom...she said whitney NEVER used the tape during the superbowl performance...every note that was sung that day was ALL LIVE!!!...
Jayson de guzman
she did lip synch that performance but not this one...
im sure the person who hates the video is Beyonce
Jarvis Mccrary
Whitney sung that song it wasn't even music to it most of the song . She had a Voice that was true talent coming from her. All you haters need to sit down some fuckin where don't try to play Whitney.
TAKE THAT BEYONCE FANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHITNEY SINGING IT LIVE!!!!!! Trying to throw the legend Whitney under the bus because Beyonce is in trouble!!!
Greg Hunt
I wish they would play it again this year just to honor her at this year's Superbowl.
Sean Warren
It saddens me that a lot of people turned their back on Whitney (and embrace people like Katy Perry). Whitney had her demions like everyone else does but this gal could sing like nobody else. I miss her and will remember her for her talent and the joy her talents gave me.
she sings effortlessly and its like a Angel has sung to us. May she rest in peace with Michael
Yea, um, can people shut up now about the Superbowl national anthem being lip-synced? This was 99% as good.
R.I.P legends never die
Annie Telan
may she rest in peace...you always remembered in your song
for all the people who said she lip synced her superbowl performance.....this video is a big bowl of SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!!......sang whitney!!!
Thats how I know there is a GOD...Everytime I hear her sing, I know she was an angel that sang in choir before she came to earth..
No one will ever be able to sing the Star Spangled Banner like she does! I cry everytime I hear her sing! She just gives the song a little umph that makes you chill all over.
gives me goosebumps. Fantastic
Love you, Whitney!
TAKE THAT all you idiot nay sayers! Effortless...absolutely flawless...and THAT'S what legends are made of!!!!!
