"One Moment In Time" by Whitney Houston
was written and produced for the 1988 Summer Olympics held in Seoul, South Korea. The song's melody was inspired by the timeless figure of Elvis Presley, with writer Albert Hammond imagining it as being sung by Presley at the opening of the Olympics. The track is an anthem for believing in yourself against all odds as Houston asks for 'one moment in time / when i'm racing with destiny / then, in that one moment of time / i will feel eternity'. The video for the song does not show Houston performing the song but is a basic collage of clips from previous Olympic ceremonies. "One Moment In Time" topped the Global Chart for two weeks.
