Twenty years ago today, Whitney sang “One Moment In Time” at the historic opening of Arthur Ashe Stadium in Forest Hills, New York. The stadium is iconic and is home to the US Open Tennis Championships. Several famous tennis players are featured in this video.
Five years ago this week (August 17, 2012), Whitney’s last film Sparkle was released in the U.S. This is a project that was close to Whitney’s heart for years and she finally got to star in and produce this remake of the 1976 film. Here she is pictured with American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, who played the title character and one of her three daughters in the film. It featured some of the original music by Curtis Mayfield, along with new music by R. Kelly. The film was postponed from its original release date due to Whitney’s passing.
