Whitney Houston Remembering Whitney - The greatest voice of our time.
On October 20, 2001, the re-issue of Whitney's Star Spangled Banner peaked at Number 30 on the Billboard R&B singles chart (the original had not entered the R&B charts). The decision to re-release the song was prompted by the September 11 attacks and, once again, Whitney donated her share of the royalties - this time toward the firefighters and victims of the terrorist attack. (Arista also donated their share).
