Leadership Clarksville Alumni hosted its 2nd Annual Lip Sync Battle at downtown's Roxy Regional Theatre, an event that featured local leaders, on stage, in costumes, lip-syncing to their favorite songs.
This year's Masters of Ceremonies were Ryan Bowie, Charlie Koon and Kimberly Wiggins.
Performers and spectators gathered in the lobby for a reception before entering the theater. After welcoming everyone to the show and recognizing this year's sponsors, the competition began.
First up was a performance of the Backstreet Boys' I Want It That Way by Joel Wallace, Ben Karnes, Eric Yow, Alaric Klinghard and Matt Cunningham. Other performers channeled the Spice Girls, The Temptations, Celine Dion and more.
Once all the votes were tallied, Mike and Cheryl Langford's turn as Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga performing Shallow, prevailed as the audience favorite performance of the evening.
The show closed when Leadership Clarksville Alumni took the stage to perform the Pharrell Williams mega-hit, Happy.
