Heidi Klum Stood Up At Karaoke Benefit Event

    March 18, 2012

UNICEF, a global charity organization, held a karaoke event with celebrities to raise money for a school in Africa. At the event, Heidi Klum, model and TV personality, was set to sing “My Girl” with Smokey Robinson. He never showed up and the event took a turn for the awesome.

The New York Post is reporting that Klum came out and told the audience the news: “Smokey stood me up. He was supposed to sing ‘My Girl’ with me. Will anybody else sing with me?” While I’m sure many people would love the chance to sing a duet with Klum, there were other plans in motion. The host of the event suggested everybody join together in a rendition of the Village People’s YMCA.

The celebrities joining Klum included Tom Hanks, Wayne Brady, Rita Wilson, Jon Huertas and Seamus Dever. Klum tweeted pictures of the event showing herself and other celebrities in Village People attire. I especially like the picture with Officer Wayne Brady.

The event was a success with UNICEF raising $400,000 for the new school in Africa. Maybe part of the curriculum can be learning how to do the YMCA since the picture Klum posted of her and others doing the dance is way off. We can’t have children being raised not knowing how to do the YMCA. Unfortunately, The Village People YouTube account has disabled embedding of their videos so go check it out if you need a refresher. It’s a great way to waste a few minutes.
