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.
Greg Hunt
this shut all those naysayers up that she couldn't sing it live, lol. RIP Whitney
Scott D

Ryland Smith

Ginnie Mae Odums
Still gives me chills. A Voice Straight From Heaven!

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.

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.

aside from beautiful voice, she's really good-looking & charming..
TAKE THAT BEYONCE FANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHITNEY SINGING IT LIVE!!!!!! Trying to throw the legend Whitney under the bus because Beyonce is in trouble!!!
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!!!...
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!!!

God's gift to the world for just a little while.
im sure the person who hates the video is Beyonce
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.
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..
R.I.P legends never die
Greg Hunt
I wish they would play it again this year just to honor her at this year's Superbowl.
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
truly "the voice"

Douglas Gauze

I think this version is even better than the Superbowl version. No one can ever sing like her. I miss her like crazy
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~~~
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...
Autumn Rose

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.
tashan patterson
how can a person stand still like that while slaying notes like that she is indeed the greatest of all time
TAKE THAT all you idiot nay sayers! Effortless...absolutely flawless...and THAT'S what legends are made of!!!!!
Love you, Whitney!
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.
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.
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
Angelica Kitali
Cornelius White
B. Berya
I agree....100%!
Bianca Polo
I wish she would have sang it a key higher but o welk
marcelo fernandes
que vois ela tia
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
The Serial
This is nowhere near the Star Spangled banner she Lipsynced. Props though, she sang it live here.
