Whitney Houston’s first ever solo televised concert. Following her historic performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the 1991 Super Bowl, Whitney decided to carry it over into a concert to honor the troops and their families. Many of the troops were returning home from the Gulf War. The concert was broadcast live on HBO (Home Box Office). 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. The show won a Cable ACE award for “Performance music special” in 1992.
