On Tuesday, Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen held “Tony Allen Karaoke Night,” a charity event benefiting the Juvenile Intervention and Faith-Based Follow-Up. Allen was scheduled to meet with fans and sign autographs, but the high point (or low point, depending on one’s perspective) of the evening had to be when he took the microphone to sing some karaoke jams. It was the “Tony Allen Karaoke Night,” after all, not the “Tony Allen Meets with Fans and Signs Autographs Night.”
ESPN Radio’s Chris Vernon has provided video footage of Allen singing “This is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan and Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You.” And both performances have to be seen to be believed.
First up, “This is How We Do It:”
Yikes. No, that is not how we do it. “We” being used to describe people who perform karaoke, although I really don’t include myself a regular member of that community, although I will occasionally perform a rocking rendition of “L.A. Woman” by The Doors from time
