Cyndi Lauper

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 StoryMichael Heiman / Getty Images
