One of the online winners will face the top celebrity in order to be named the LipSync Plus Grand Champion.

WMC-TV Anchor Joe Birch, I LoveMempis Blogger Holly Whitfield and rapper Frayser Boy (“It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” co-writer) will serve as judges. Katrina Coleman from the Memphis Comedy Fest will be the emcee.

Tickets can be purchased at or call 529-4569.

Sales Will Help Provide Utility Assistance to Families in Crisis

LipSync Plus ticket sales will benefit the Plus-1 Program, a Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division program administered by the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association.

LipSync Plus is presented by MIFA and WMC Action News 5, Memphis Comedy Festival, The Hard Rock Café, Tennessee Valley Authority, New Horizon Apartments.

Those supporting Lip Sync Plus can not only help a family in need of utility assistance but also eat, drink and watch Memphis and others locked in a lip-sync battle at the Hard Rock Café, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., on April 14.

MIFA Plus 1 encourages MLGW customers to pay $1 more on their utility bill every month. That dollar will be used to help cover people who cannot afford their bill.

MIFA Plus 1 helps hundreds of families each year. Last year, MIFA received nearly 17,000 requests for financial assistance, but because of the program's limited funds, less than 3,000 of these families received Plus 1 assistance.
