    BTW... about her performance of the Star Spangled Banner...

    The Star Spangled Banner (Whitney Houston song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "The Star Spangled Banner" is a charity single recorded by American singer Whitney Houston to raise funds for soldiers and families of those involved in the Persian Gulf War. Written by Francis Scott Key, "The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States. The musical arrangement for Whitney Houston's rendition was by conductor John Clayton. The recording was produced by music coordinator Rickey Minor, along with Houston herself.Traditionally performed at sports games in the U.S., "The Star Spangled Banner" was performed by Houston at Super Bowl XXV in 1991. Houston donated her portion of the proceeds.
    After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Arista Records re-released Houston's "The Star Spangled Banner". She once again donated her share of the royalties, as did Arista Records, towards the firefighters and victims of the terrorist attacks. This time the single peaked at #6 on the US Hot 100, and was certified platinum by the RIAA. It also surprisingly peaked at #5 on the Canadian Singles Chart. This made Houston the first musical act to take the national anthem Top 10 in the US, and have it certified platinum. In 2001, the song reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100, which was Houston's last Top 10 entry on the chart.
    The thing about "I Will Always Love You" is that the live versions never were the same as they didn't let her sing the opening acapella. No autotune, no backup singers or fancy gimmicks were needed for Whitney. Just a microphone and her amazing voice.

    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.
