Malverne’s own 10-year old Vivienne Coletta will be singing “America the Beautiful” at this year’s U.S. Open just prior to the night session on Sept. 1.
After a competitive, nationwide search, Vivienne was one of 12 young performers who have been selected to sing prior to a U.S. Open match.
Vivienne is a 5th grader who has a passion for her schoolwork and performing in shows. Last year, she made her professional debut in an off-Broadway musical.
Officials at the U.S. Open reported that they received more than 200 auditions requests to perform at the annual event.
