Introducing: The Double Trouble Singers!
Thanks to modern technology and the on-the-spot videography and twittering by Mr. Twitter himself, WSOC-TV sports guy Bill Voth (@billvoth), we have a real treat for you.
Panthers wide receiver Kenny Moore had a karaoke-style fund-raiser last night (Tuesday) at Dixie's in uptown Charlotte to raise money for two local charities, Harvest Center and Summit House. Running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart were there -- and got in on the action.
Stewart, as you may know, is quite a musician. He plays the piano and has a growing career in the recording industry. Williams? Well, let's just say he has fun and tries really hard.
From last night's event, via Voth's twitter, here's a look at Williams singing "I Believe I Can Fly" -- solo. Not exactly R. Kelly, but his heart was in it.
And here's the Double Trouble combo together after Stewart joins Williams and, well, helps out his good friend.
You get the idea already, but here's an extended version.
It's worth mentiioning that the previous afternoon (Monday), Williams and Stewart went fishing together on Lake Norman. Stewart said Williams caught the biggest fish. Well, last night, it was Stewart who threw Williams a life-raft!
Congratulations to both of them and to Moore for being so fun-loving and for caring enough to support a great cause.
BONUS COVERAGE: News 14's Mike Solarte got in on the action too!

I hope Double Trouble stays together as long as possible...
We have something special in Charlotte.

This would be the proper time, I think, to resurrect DWill's own unique rendition of "Pants on the Ground":
With Ryne Robinson on drums.

We need to give kenny moore a real chance at a starting role. He made the most of the touches he had last year. Give him a shot. We are giving everyone else a shot!

Love these guys. They are awesome. But come on guys(ak) we need to be realistic and trade DWILL now! I hate saying that I really do, but the way our ownership is handling things right now do you really think they're gonna give Williams a big contract next year when his contract expires?! I doubt it, this team has needs and RB is not one of them, even if we lose one of these two awesome guys. Trade Dwill for a 1st and 3rd rounder. He's older than Stewart and has many more miles on his legs that's why I pick dwill to go. We have quality backups behind these guys anyway. This really needs to happen before we lose dwill without compensation!

Say we do trade DWill and Stewart has a serious injury. What do we do then? Having the two of them is essential to our offense because they keep each other fresh ALL SEASON LONG. We don't have a very respected passing game so why start breaking down the running game. Please think before you type man!!!

Virman have u watched any games ever? We have more than adequate backups behind DWill and Stewart. We have much more pressing needs, even if we lose one of our Superstar caliber RBs. Think before you type man.

@SmokeySmokerson - Nice fantasy trade suggestion. but that is not happening in Carolina. And should not happen either. You have bascially a rookie QB, and one true WR..to trade with your RB strength at this time, is not a wise move for the Panthers.

Just imagine this, we trade dwill for a first and 3rd. We get Dez Bryant in the 1st, we go DT in the 2nd and get Jordan Shipley with one of our 2 3rd rounders. We'd greatly improve our "no respect" passing game and get a much need D Lineman. And we would STILL have one of the best, youngest and freshest RBs in the game today.. With quality backups behind him. I know what I'm talking about man.

Uhh, John, he only caught 6 of his 12 targets and had numerous drops. Kid's got a long way to go until he's even a legit slot receiver.
Absolutely, Smokey. It makes no sense to pay two elite backs when they limit each other's production.
Virman, Williams has missed time in two of his four seasons despite never carrying a full starter's workload. How exactly is he staying fresh? Stewart, on the other hand, has never missed a regular season game.

I think the fundraising efforts of Kenny Moore were a great start in the right direction! Kenny grew up in Charlotte, and is ready to give back to his community. What a great gesture for a great football player. Kenny has many different talents, and one of them is giving back, and the other is being a great "wide receiver." We need him to start next year, just like he has "started" with giving to Charlotte.

It was a classic event for a classic young man. It was a lot of fun, watching those guys support each other. They are setting an example for a up rising star for the Carolina Panthers.It was good to see Kenny Greenville family come out and support, his first Karaoke-style fund raiser. Kenny is a good role model, for any young man.Oh yeah,Kenny did sing.LOL Love Aunt Von and Uncle Bobby
