Bealefeld sings (if that's what you call it!)
Baltimore's police commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III just finished singing Whitney Houston's I'm Every Woman on 98 Rock, paying off a bet to the mayor's office after his all male police team lost a marathon relay to an all-women's team headed by an official from City Hall.
I posted this under the "Breaking Crime" category because that's what it was -- a crime. Even the 98 Rock announcer couldn't contain himself: "I have a lot of respect for you but not for the singing, that was horrific." Another chimbed in that complaints are flooding 911 for dogs howling because of the song and another added, "Every drug dealer in town is thinking, the police commissioner is really nuts."
For those of you who listened but couldn't for the life of you figure out what the commissioner was singing, here's what he was trying to sing:
"Whatever you want; Whatever you need; Anything you want done baby; I´ll do it naturally; Cause I´m every woman; It´s all in me; It´s all in me; I´m every woman; It´s all in me; Anything you want done baby; I do it naturally"
The commish lost to a team called Criminal Justice Chicks led by Sheryl Goldstein, who heads the mayor's criminal justice office. Reporter Justin Fenton and a photographer were in the studio. Bealefeld keeps talking about people "staying in their lanes." He should take that advice before launching his next career. Here's the video from WBAL and posted on YouTube:
