The "Colors of the Wind" singer commemorated their special evening with an Instagram post alongside Fleming. "We opened the @kennedycenter safely and with purpose through our music and passion for the arts," she wrote.

Williams donned a shiny blue gown that highlighted her curves while the opera singer wore a sheer royal blue gown with many sequins on the body and sleeves.

As part of safety precautions amid the pandemic, only 40 people were allowed to be spectators but had to observe physical distancing while watching the performance.

Williams is not only talented on-stage but on-screen as well as she pursued an acting career that flourished through the years. In 1992, she appeared in the television movie "The Jacksons - An American Dream."
