Whitney Houston – Star Spangled Banner

Whitney Houston – Star Spangled Banner


And now to honor America; especially the brave men and women serving our nation in the Persian Gulf and throughout the world, please join
in the singing of our National Anthem; the anthem will be followed by a fly-over of F-16 jets from the 56th Tactical Training Wing at McDill Air Force Base, and will be performed by the Florida Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Jahja Ling and sung by Grammy Award Winner Whitney Houston – Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early
light, what so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s
last gleaming. Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight. O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming. And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. O say, does that star-spangled banner yet
wave O’er the land of the free, and the home of
the brave!

  1. “A few extraneous notes”
    What utter crap.
    This is a fantastic re harmonization of the original.
    The bands chords and embellishments majorly enhance the emotional impact of the melody.
    A beautiful piece written for a country of uncultured swine.

  2. People, stop saying Lady Gaga had “just as good if not better performance than Whitney Houston.” This is the best performance up to date. Fuck an opinion. Don’t kid yourselves.

  3. What a race traitor! Doesn't she know America is racist and she should be kneeling?

    For real, tho. This is incredible. Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

  4. No one can sing the National Anthem like this ever in life. She cannot be matched nor duplicated. I miss you girl. October 3rd, 2019

  5. Bruh who gives a damn if it was pre-recorded is it still her voice, yes or no? Alright then shut the hell up just mad cause she did it better than anyone

  6. I think that this just shows how versatile Whitney can be. She can take it to church like R. Kelly. Yet, she can also deliver a really sensual performance alike to Fergie. This performance certainly should have gotten a lot more attention.
    Competitively, this is the most appropriate and fitting 😂💀
