Whitney Houston became a part of NFL history with her Super Bowl performance of The Star Spangled Banner, but she was also regarded as being part of an important ceremony in the world of tennis, performing at the opening of Arthur Ashe Stadium in 1997.
“One Moment In Time” was the song Houston sang on the opening night of the 1997 US Open Tennis Championships as the stadium was officially dedicated, with nearly all living US singles champions honored on court. She briefly spoke before her performance stating:
“This is an honor to come celebrate the opening of the Arthur Ashe Stadium,” said Houston at the opening of her performance. “This is incredible – an incredible evening of champions. Like Arthur, each of you had your moment in time. So tonight, I would like to dedicate this song to all of you.”
