NEW YORK (AP) -- They didn't have iTunes when Whitney Houston did her version of the national anthem at the Super Bowl back in 1991. But they have it now and that's the form that Jennifer Hudson's version of the Star Spangled Banner will take, now that it's being released.
Her people say the song she performed this past Sunday before the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals can be downloaded as a digital single. Part of the proceeds from sales of the song will go to the Hudson-King Foundation. That's the fund she set up to care for the needs of families who have lost relatives to violent crime.
Hudson's performance at the Super Bowl was her first public appearance since her mother, brother and 7-year-old were shot to death late last year.
