Mayor Jim Strickland in Lipsync Battle

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland wasn't afraid to fake his singing abilities for a good cause Thursday night.

Giving his best fake rendition of Jerry Lee Lewis' Great Balls of Fire, the mayor even pretended to play the keyboards.

It was all at a LipSync Battle at the Hard Rock Cafe to benefit the Plus One program for MLGW customers.

The mayor was up against rap artist Al Kapone, who performed his rendition of "Let's Get It On."

WMC Action News 5's Joe Birch was given the honor of judging the night's performers. Al Kapone walked away the winner.
