The year was 1994. The event was the World Music Awards. Dancing or the first time together on international TV, Patrick Swayze and wife Lisa Nieme dance to the song “All The Man That I Need” as a salute to the late pop music icon Whitney Houston.
This performance was just a few years after Dirty Dancing was released. Patrick Swayze was hotter than ever, so this performance was a huge deal at the time. Watching it since he passed away in 2009 makes the clip even more powerful.
With their fluid, sultry movements, it’s clear Patrick and Lisa were made to dance together. It was no secret how much he loved her, a love that never wavered during their 34-year marriage. The couple first met in 1970 when Swayze was 18 years old and Lisa was a dance student of Patrick’s mother.
Watch closely, and you’ll see Whitney Houston in the audience clapping wildly after their performance. If you didn’t catch it the first time, be sure to watch it again. What an amazing moment between these two angels!
