Quick Google search reveals:
Teddy Pendergrass sang the National Anthem before the game between the Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia 76ers at First Union Center on April 16, 2003 in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Eagles recently held an extravagant house party Sept. 8, 2003 to herald their new home at Lincoln Financial Field. Lighting Systems Design, Inc. (LSDI) produced a spectacular stadium opening show combining lasers, lighting, pyrotechnics and huge fireballs to provide what spectators claimed is one of the most spectacular shows ever witnessed in the City of Brotherly Love.

The event was part of a half-hour Monday Night Football pre-game show which featured Irish Tenor Ronan Tynan singing "God Bless America," a stirring video of Eagles history, Teddy Pendergrass singing the National Anthem, an F-16 flyover, and a surprise appearance by actor Sylvester Stallone. The show was designed to inaugurate the new stadium and kick-off the Eagles' 2003 NFL season with an unforgettable experience for more than 67,000 fans in attendance and the 2 million plus fans watching the local ABC affiliates broadcast.

You may be right. I remember when the all-star game was in Philly the entire theme was centered around the "Philly Sound". I remember Hall & Oates performing as well.

Very sad. When I think about all the great Black singers who have died in the past couple of years it just boggles my mind. Luther Vandross, Barry White, Michael Jackson, Levi Stubbs, Isaac Hayes, the list goes on and on. RIP Teddy.

When we were insolent we were placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds - pretty standard really."

Teddy was an inspiration. He made such wonderful music and his voice just was penetrating. Compared to what passes for R+B on the radio now, Teddy sounds like a men among boys.

I saw Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes 35+ years ago. Great show.

I'm glad he started singing again after the accident. He had a smooth, soulful sound lacking in today's R&B music.
