BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - For the fifth year in a row, local celebrities took to the stage to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Lip Sync BR partnered with ACS to host the 2019 Lip Sync Battle.
The event was held Tuesday, Dec. 10 at The Varsity Theater.
The competition featured seven teams of local celebrities who “belted out” their favorite songs in three rounds “mic-to-mic.” The team that raises the most money through audience tips the night of the event will be awarded the People’s Choice Award.
WAFB’s own team, #ThisJustInCrowd featuring Carmen Poe and Mykal Vincent, competed and won in the event. Poe and Vincent had the highest total score of the event and received a perfect score for their performance of MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This.”
The event raised over $31,000, with all proceeds going to the ACS in Louisiana. Donations will help fund groundbreaking cancer research, patient care programs, and much more.
