History

Following her historic performance of the "The Star Spangled Banner" during the Super Bowl, Houston decided to carry it over into a concert to honor the troops, their families, and military and government dignitaries in honor of those returning from the Gulf War.[1] The concert was broadcasted live on HBO. The cable network agreed to unscramble its signal allowing it to be available to over 53 million cable households. The concert was open to only 3,100 people, all of whom were either military personnel or their families.[2] The show won a Cable ACE award for "Performance music special" in 1992.[3]
