LipSync Plus-1 contestants wow crowd at Hard Rock Cafe

Among stiff competition, long-time Memphis radio DJ Stan “The Bell Ringer” Bell won this year’s LipSync Plus-1 contest at the Hard Rock Cafe on Beale.

About 100 supporters attended the fundraiser on April 20 as seven contestants battled for the title and grand prize of two round-trip domestic tickets on Allegiant Airlines.
For his final number, Bell wore a Derek Jeter No. 2 Yankees shirt and gold chains and performed the old school hip-hop tune, “Rappers Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang. Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell traded in his suit for jeans, white cowboy hat and a Sun Studios T-shirt and rocked out on his six-string razor to the classic hit, “Memphis Tennessee” by Johnny Rivers.
MLGW and MIFA also organized a silent auction to bring in much needed funds for the Plus-1 program which provides one-time utility assistance for families in crisis. A large part of this year’s success is due to the generous support of our sponsors: Top Notch Security, WMC Action News 5, Regional One Health, TVA, Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau and Memphis Comedy Festival.
