Scott D : Thee greatest singer of all time , no question

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

Mychael Corinthos : Anyone else notice she never sings a song the same way twice

Ryland Smith : the greatest singer ever.

zest tee : 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...

L. LightEyes : 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

TheRetroWoman80 : 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.

Douglas Gauze : sounds even better than the recorded version. whitney your the best in my eyes. # 1

Autumn Rose : The way she hits that bridge tho!

sweetrose19 : lol i this is so late but the comment about the one person who hates this song is Beyonce was funny as hell.

brondo1012 : 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

Smarty 5 : 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

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

Gessylord : the only one way to sing this national anthem


perth45 : WOW, WOW, WOW......all these years later and I still her her like the first time....WOW.....

tintinesk5 : My girl, my girl.... love you

Sean Cruz : This video quadrupled in length for me because I kept rewinding every part several times. Incredible

BOOYAH18 : 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 : USA USA USA USA!

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

Praxton-de-Nouveau : 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!

lcb -1992 : ' It's not Red States or Blue States but the United States' - Arnold Swarzeneggar

Gerald Mcwilliams : Dam. It still hurts.r.i.p

Jay Ld : 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

jnshot97 : DAMN MY HEART CANT TAKE IT!!!!!!!!!!

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.

pc : 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 ☺️🌟🧡

Honeycombe88 : What a loss to the world of such talent. Awesome.

Mohsin Shaikh : Whitney was the best and others still need sum rest to even get near to her 😅

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

lboyk : am I the only one listening to this in 2018?
