Last night was Battieoke 2014, Shane Battier’s annual Karaoke fundraiser. It’s a pretty cool event that Battier hosts every year to raise money for his foundation, aptly called the Take Charge Foundation. Battier started the foundation to raise money for underprivileged kids to be able to go to school.
As a leader on and off the court, Shane Battier firmly believes that the future of our youth rests in higher education. The Battier Take Charge Foundation, established by Shane and Heidi, is dedicated to providing resources for the development and education of underserved youth and teens.
Battier may be frustrating when he’s on the opposing team, but he’s a pretty cool dude.
Last night the Heat put on quite a show, and without further ado, let’s check out the highlights.
Norris Cole and James Jones singing “Holy Grail.”
LeBron James and Michael Beasley singing “Back That Ass Up.”
We also had Battier, Greg Oden and for some reason, Ken Jeong, singing “I Want It That Way.”
Chris Bosh was awesome as always, singing “It’s Not Unusual” while hitting the “Carlton.”
We saw “The Heatles,” a.k.a. LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem, singing “Blurred Lines.”
And finally, the whole team closed out the show with Lil Jon’s “Get Low.”
It was a pretty awesome event. Great work by Battier and the whole Heat organization to raise money for a good cause.
