Tickets can be purchased for $30 pre-sale and are available at LipSyncBR.org. Tickets are $35 at the door. VIP tickets, which include premium viewing and an appetizer bar, can be purchased for $75 online only.

The competition features 7 teams of local celebrities who will “belt 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.

Each competing team is also vying for donation dollars ahead of the competition. All donations go to the ACS in Louisiana. Donations help fund groundbreaking cancer research, patient care programs, and much more.

WAFB’s Carmen Poe and Mykal Vincent are among the field of competitors. To view the #ThisJustInCrowd team page and make a donation in support of the team, click here.
