Nonprofit CEO Throws Down In Viral Lip Sync Video


In a video that's gone viral, Betsey Andrews Parker shows off some dance and lip sync moves for a good cause: the 4th Annual Strafford County Lip Sync Battle.

Andrews Parker is CEO of the Community Action Partnership of Strafford County. The private, non-profit organization seeks to end poverty and funds programs focused on food, education, child care, housing, and utilities assistance.

"Who doesn't love The Pointer Sisters?" she says of her one-take performance to the song "Jump." The video wraps up  with a sing-along (lip sync, of course) on a sidewalk in downtown Dover.

Two Dover Mounted Police Officers even joined in the fun.

The 4th Annual Strafford County Lip Sync Battle is Nov. 17 at Dover High School. Up to 25 teams will be accepted.
