3. "The Star-Spangled Banner"

Whitney's flawless performance at Super Bowl XXV in 1991 is without a doubt the definitive rendition of the national anthem. Arista Records was flooded with phone calls for days afterwards, prompting the company to release it as a single, with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross. Whitney was the first artist to make the national anthem a Top 10 hit and the first to take it to platinum. Whitney was already a star at this point, but this performance made her a legend.
