Pop diva Whitney Houston's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" was the hottest-selling single in the USA for the week ending October 7, 2001, according to music sales tracker SoundScan, and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry of America. The Arista Records CD, which couples the national anthem with Houston's version of "America the Beautiful," has already raised more than $1 million to benefit the New York police and fire departments.
