Question about AIDS tribute by figure skater

As a non-reader of rec.sport.skating.ice.figure, I'm sorry to intrude
here, but I have a question some of you can probably answer in a
heartbeat, without a second thought.

A friend of mine told me that there was a recent program on ABC (I'm
assuming it to be the one that aired on the evening of April 13) in
which there was a skater who, wrapped in a red AIDS ribbon, skated
to a piece of a cappella male ch***music, a piece which he recognized
as being by another friend of mine, a composer from Atlanta, Georgia.
I didn't see the program myself, but as you can understand I am very
interested in knowing if my composer friend's piece was actually
used.  

Does anyone recognize what I'm talking about here?  And if so, how
can I go about getting a tape of the performance?  I want to track
this thing down as a surprise for my composer friend, if this story
is true.

*Any* help any of you can give will be much appreciated!

This is definitely a reference to the "Ave Maria" exhibition by U.S. Men's
Champion Rudy Galindo,performed by him both at the U.S. Nationals and World
Championships(he won the bronze) exhibitions.Many here have taped it.
