THE National Anthem

She is calmly joyful — cool, actually, and free of fear. And when she arrives at  Oh, say [cymbal] does our star- [cymbal] spangled banner yet wave , she moves to lift the crowd. It’s a question. It’s always been a question. And she sings it like an answer. … Whitney’s version made it all absolute, for a moment. Her arms were wide and reaching slightly up at the end, a pose familiar to many Americans, across races. Her head was back, as one’s can be when victorious, and as one’s can be when asking for and ecstatically receiving the glory of God.”

Still the best performance of the Star Spangled Banner that I can remember hearing.  She had some pipes.
