Olympian Steve Hooker Among Australian Athletes Singing for Charity in Melbourne

Australian Olympic pole vaulter Steve Hooker “will be among a number of Australian sports and TV stars to sing songs for charity” at the annual Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s Starry Starry Night Gala Ball in Melbourne on November 22.

Hooker will sing Old Time Rock and Roll while AFL player Luke Ball “is set to sing Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back“.

The 11th annual event, which will be co-hosted by former Olympian Giaan Rooney, “hopes to raise up to $1 million for the foundation, which aims to keep children safe from violence” (Herald Sun, 11/14).
