Whitney Houston's 'The Star Spangled Banner' To Be Re-released By Arista

(9/14/01, 6 p.m. ET) -- Executives at Whitney Houston's record label, Arista Records, are considering re-releasing her rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner," which the singer recorded 10 years ago during the Gulf War (news - web sites). Houston's version of the national anthem achieved gold status, and reached Number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Proceeds from the sale of the song are expected to benefit the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon (news - web sites), according to published reports. But an Arista Records spokesperson said that she could not confirm any details at press time.

"The Star Spangled Banner," was written on September 13, 1814, by Francis Scott Key, and officially declared the United States's national anthem in 1931.
