Singing at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York on Sept. 11, 2011, Cyndi Lauper declared our flag to be still streaming, or something like that. Afterward, in a pair of messages on Twitter, Lauper said:
Whew, I just did the anthem for the US open. It was an awesome experience.I got choked up in the middle remembering 9/11.
The moon shone done on us and I tried to say a prayer at the same time.. I hope I didn't mess up too bad. I wanted it to be comforting. Xcyn
