Singer Pink may have the flu, but she's determined to still sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl this Sunday.

"Trying to practice the flu way. I've been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song," Pink wrote in part on Instagram Saturday.

She goes on to explain how singing the anthem is one of her "biggest honors in life," especially in front of her military family.
