The Williams sisters were presenting the performance for Best Original Song nominee Beyonce. She was nominated for “Be Alive” which featured on the soundtrack of King Richard.

This moving performance had already been pre-recorded for the Oscars and was filmed at tennis courts in Compton. It was at these courts that Serena and Venus learned to play tennis during their childhood.

It’s not talked about too often, but reality star and socialite Kim Kardashian has for a long time been friends with tennis champion Serena Williams.

Interestingly enough, the two started out with an employee-employer relationship. Prior to her rise to fame, Kim made a living cleaning out and arranging closets for Serena.

Now that the two women have become celebrities in their respective fields, the two maintain a friendship.

In September 2015, Kim was joined by her younger half-sister Kendall Jenner and a group of friends to watch Serena and Venus Williams‘ match at the 2015 U.S. Open in New York City.

“I wish people could see her [Williams] silly side,” Kim shared in a 2017 interview with Vogue.

“She is obsessed with karaoke, which personally is my biggest fear in life. I remember a dinner in San Francisco before a DNC fund-raiser. Serena sang, Obama sang, Kanye sang. It was legendary. She gives herself those moments—it’s how she recharges. Serena’s the girl you can call and say anything to. She’ll never judge you, and she’s never too busy for you. Oh, and she can keep any secret.”
