Five years ago, Spencer Sutherland knew he wanted to perform at Arthur Ashe Kids' Day.  Now the singer/songwriter is getting the opportunity to take center court at this premiere event for children which will include a day of music, crafts, games.   He will be joining artists Sofia Carson, Jack & Jack, New Hope Club and Alex Aiono for the hottest schedule of pop music all in one location.  Also, on hand will be five-time U.S. Open champion Roger Federer.

Sutherland, who at one point was singing in restaurants in his home state of Ohio, shared his excitement for performing in front of a New York audience to PIX11 Morning News anchors Betty Nguyen and Dan Mannarino.
