This is did not occur in the ’80s, but this was performed by an ’80s icon – Whitney Houston.
“The Star Spangled Banner” was performed by Houston at Super Bowl XXV on January 27, 1991. The game ended up being historic, with poor Scott Norwood missing the game winning field goal in the end.
This performance of the National Anthem is considered to be one of the best performances of all time.
On a personal note, I missed this game as I was serving in the Persian Gulf, right in the middle of Desert Storm. When I got back home, the cassingle was still out, and I made sure I got it. And I had seen this performance later on.
