In Memoriam - Whitney Houston, the greatest National Anthem singer in S.B. history.

As many may be aware, or perhaps not, Whitney Houston was found dead this afternoon in L.A. at the age of 48. A very young age if you ask me. Immediately, the first thought of her, was of the National Anthem just before Super Bowl XXV. A moment that has always wowed me, as with many others. Especially at the time, the first Gulf War. I had several cousins over there, so it hit home for me. The second memory, was when my sisters took me with them to Riverfest in St. Paul when she had a concert that evening. At the time, yeah, I kinda hoped the rest of my head banging buddies weren't there. But I will admit, I was happy to get to see her, and what an awesome voice she had. Never did thank them for that. That was a few years before the Super Bowl performance. Enjoy this little tidbit from that Super Bowl I was able to find. (With a little help from Chris) If you never saw or heard it, take a moment to now. She will always be remembered as a part of Super Bowl history.

Farewell and Godspeed Whitney
