This year’s 3rd annual BFF Gala was another star-studded black tie gala, or rather it should be called ‘Celebrity Karaoke’. It was a hilarious night watching stars like Scott McGillivray, Ben Mulroney and more let loose and more belt out familiar karaoke classics for charity on May 21st, 2015 at the Ritz Carlton.

Guests voted for their favourites to take centre stage and the top votes competed for karaoke glory which made for really great entertainment.

Scott McGillivray was a great start for the first karaoke performance of the night, as he really set the tone for the rest of the evening.

Ben Mulroney looked great as always while singing Tom Jones “It’s Not Unusual”, one of his 2 performances that night. His suede loafers got everyone’s attention.

Also, Toronto’s own international EDM celebrity Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman), donated $10,000 to BFF to have Sarah Baeumler, Jessica Mulroney and more sing Madonna’s “Like a Virgin”.

Breakfast Television’s Jenn Valentyne was great on stage, so great she went up for an encore performance.
