Pop chanteuse Whitney Houston was born on this day in 1963. In her brief career, she won two Emmy Awards, eight Grammy Awards, 14 World Music Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards. One of her more famous performances was singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XXV in Tampa, Florida on January 27, 1991, ten days after the US entered the Gulf War. She actually lip-synced with a recording that she had made earlier, because, according to Wikipedia, "her musical director warn[ed] her that it [might] not sound as well because of distractions such as fans, teams, jets, etc." The recording of that performance was released on Arista Records on February 12 and reached #20 on the Hot 100. The song was re-released on September 26, 2001, shortly after the September 11 attacks, and reached #6 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart.
