When you’re asked to attend a Serena Williams karaoke event, the answer is always an immediate yes. Being such a Serena fan, I’ve known about her longtime passion for karaoking and couldn’t miss the opportunity to witness her indulge for a night. ESPNW came through in the clutch with credentials, and it was game on!
Originally posted for their site, here’s some of what the night entailed.
If this whole tennis thing didn’t work out for Serena Williams, there’s no doubt she could’ve had a world-class career as a professional karaoke star, if that’s even a thing.
Wednesday night, we witnessed her in action at Delta Air Lines’ US Open pre-event, the 2nd Annual Delta OPEN Mic, and her command of the stage was almost as impressive as her tennis skills. Almost, because let’s be honest, nothing compares to what she’s able to do with a tennis racket.
“Orange is the New Black’s” Laverne Cox hosted, as her castmate Uzo Aduba, “Saturday Night Live’s” Jay Pharoah, GRAMMY Award-winner Estelle, “The Good Wife’s” Alan Cumming, and more all belted out their favorite karaoke tunes.
