«The Star-Spangled Banner» (over) ble sunget av Whitney Houston under Super Bowl XXV i 1991 – da var hun 28 år gammel. Min kone er amerikansk, så vi så på flere videoer i går (fra LA Times) etter vi hørte at en av Amerikas mest kjente sangere døde tragisk natt til søndag.


The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. …

… With America entangled in the Persian Gulf War, Houston performed «The Star Spangled Banner» at Super Bowl XXV at Tampa Stadium on January 27, 1991. Due to overwhelming response to her rendition, it was released as a commercial single and video of her performance, and reached the Top 20 on the US Hot 100, making her the only act to turn the national anthem into a pop hit of that magnitude.
