Whitney Houston is a legendary singer whose voice will likely never be matched - her talent is timeless and her music will be admired for ages to come.
When she sang the American national anthem in 1991 during Super Bowl XXV in Florida, she set a standard that is hard to meet.
With her impressive tonal range and beautiful, soulful voice, Whitney's performance of The Star-Spangled Banner is one that will remain a favourite with Americans for many more years.
In fact, many of them feel that no one will ever sing it better, Briefly.co.za gathered.
According to Essence, Whitney was inspired by Marvin Gaye and his 1983 rendition of the song.
She gave a cute and polite wave for the crowd in Florida and then went on to sing a song that would become Arista Records' fastest-selling single.
The singer was backed by the Florida Orchestra that was led by conductor Jahja Ling and did a phenomenal job at singing in a way that gives fans goosebumps and makes them grin to this day.
