Lip Sync Battle, Memphis Style (Discounted Tickets!)
Lip sync battles are officially “a thing” now. Coming up on April 14, you can witness a very Memphis edition of a lip sync battle at the Hard Rock Cafe.
Lip Sync Plus is an event co-hosted by the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association (MIFA) and MLGW where five celebrity contestants will battle five lip sync-ers from the community. It’s going to be amazing.
Tickets to watch the competition are $30 per person or two for $50, and the event benefits Plus-1, a utility assistance program run by MIFA and MLGW. So, go ahead and get your tickets, which include food, a drink, and photos on the red carpet.
Or, take a chance on winning a pair of tickets. I have instructions on how to enter a bit further down. (Giveaway ended – congrats to Ryan!)
But first, let’s meet our contestants. In one corner, we have five Memphis celebrities.
- Food Network star Gina Neely
- Rapper and music producer Al Kapone
- Memphis mayor Jim Strickland
- Radio host Bev Johnson
- Bar Kays vocalist Larry Dodson
In the other corner, we have the four Memphians who garnered the most votes in Lip Sync Plus’ online video contest, perhaps soon to be Memphis celebrities themselves.
- Latasha Peebles
- David Page
- Aristarchus Neely
- Carlie Lawrence
You can watch their entry videos and read about the prizes they’re competing for here. Joe Birch and yours truly will serve as judges, and Katrina Coleman from the Memphis Comedy Fest will be the emcee.
Who will win this ferocious battle? Only one way to find out. Get your tickets here.
How To Win Tickets To The Show (Giveaway Ended) If you want to enter to win a pair of tickets ($100 value) to Lip Sync Plus on April 14, just leave me a comment on this blog post and tell me which song you’d perform in a lip sync battle. I’ll do a random drawing on Friday morning and announce the winner on the “5 things to do” post on April 8 at approximately 9 a.m.
As a judge, I’m secretly hoping someone does some Disney.
