Tony Allen sang karaoke and it was amazing

Many NBA players make charity appearances, but it’s a safe bet that 99% of those events don’t feature Tony Allen singing karaoke. Well, the Memphis Grizzlies guard put on a benefit the Juvenile Intervention and Faith-Based Follow-Up, and it was called Tony Allen Karaoke Night. And it featured Tony Allen singing Karaoke.
Judging from the video footage provided by ESPN Radio’s Chris Vernon, Allen’s karaoke choices are on point. First, he tackled Montell Jordan’s classic jock-jam “This is How We Do It,” although he forgot the lyrics by his own admission.
Admittedly, that’s pretty embarrassing. On the other hand, Allen probably picked these songs out because the song menu didn’t have any Future. Seriously, how do you put on an event called Tony Allen Karaoke Night and not have Future? A video of Allen singing “Turn On the Lights” would have melted the entire Internet. Hopefully this footage of Allen doing Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You” works as consolation.
