With all the talk about Beyonce lip syncing the national anthem at President Obama’s inauguration, some people — including Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams — have been accusing Whitney Houston of doing the same thing at the Superbowl in 1991.
But, Whitney’s mom, Cissy Houston, is setting the record straight. She told omg! Insider, “Everybody lip syncs. She [Whitney] didn’t want to do it because she can’t lip sync … neither can I. She said, ‘I want to sing it,’ and she sang it.”
Cissy is promoting a new book called Remembering Whitney. Whitney Houston died on February 11, 2012 at the age of 48.
