US Open Anthem Auditions

Audition to Perform at the 2019 US Open!

The US Open Anthem Auditions are back in 2019 for its 13th year, offering the opportunity for kids 14 years or younger to submit an online audition to sing “America the Beautiful” live in Arthur Ashe Stadium during this year’s US Open, with thousands of fans in attendance.

Submit Your Audition

Parents, for your child to be considered, upload an unedited videotaped audition (containing both video and audio) of your child individually performing a cappella (without music) all or a portion (but at least 30 seconds in length) of "America the Beautiful" to YouTube. Then send us the link and we will review for consideration.

A select number of contestants from the online submissions will be invited to participate in an in-person call-back audition in New York City in June. Applicants will be asked to perform all or a portion of “America the Beautiful” in front of a panel of judges, in hopes of winning a chance to perform live at the US Open.

All submissions must be uploaded and received by the USTA by 5 p.m. ET on May 10, 2019.

By submitting your audition, you agree to comply with the  2019 US Open Anthem Audition official rules.

Please note: The USTA will not distribute or publish your audition videos. However, be aware that if you upload them on YouTube in public view, you will make your child’s video accessible. Please refer to YouTube’s terms and conditions for use of that service.

Perform at the 2019 US Open

The USTA will make its final singer selections in July. Those selected will also receive a US Open gift bag and tickets to their performance session.

The selected winners will go on to perform “America the Beautiful” live during the night sessions at the 2019 US Open, which will be held Aug. 27 to Sept. 9.
