Throwback BIC: Star-Spangled Banner

"give me one moment in time/when i'm racing with destiny..."--Whitney Houston

In honor of Jennifer Hudson's a-ma-zing Superbowl performance of "Star-Spangled Banner" last night, the weight of which was reminiscent of Whitney Houston's history-making rendition of the national anthem, I'm making Whit the throwback for the day. Sweaty upper lip and all, it's undeniable that Ms. Crack Is Wack forever changed the face and sound of the national anthem, and all young female songstresses that bless the song today owe her a debt of gratitude for being the first to put the official "stank" on the tune. Enjoy the trip down memory lane.
