Church Point Football Player Talks Taylor Swift, Beyonce Before Singing Shakira’s ‘Hips Don’t Lie’
Gavin Benoit, a talented football player for the Church Point Bears, has recently found himself in the spotlight for reasons beyond the gridiron.
In a lighthearted and entertaining interview with KATC sports reporter Meagan Glover, Gavin shared his thoughts on pop princesses Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and ultimately gave an unforgettable performance of Shakira's hit song 'Hips Don't Lie.'
During the interview, Meagan asked Gavin about his musical preferences and whether he considered himself a "Swiftie." With a grin on his face, Gavin responded, "Taylor Swift is very alright to me." Though his response may not have been the most enthusiastic endorsement, it was clear that he had some appreciation for the singer.
When the topic shifted to Beyonce, Gavin seemed a little unsure and felt put on the spot. He admitted to knowing some of her songs but couldn't come up with a specific one at the moment. However, the real magic happened when Gavin brought up Shakira.
A spark ignited in Gavin's eyes, and he confidently shared that he knew one of Shakira's songs. Without missing a beat, he launched into a hilarious off-key falsetto rendition of the opening lines of 'Hips Don't Lie' featuring Wyclef Jean. "I'm on tonight, and my hips don't lie," he sang, much to the amusement of his teammates and the KATC crew.
As laughter filled the air, Gavin's infectious joy quickly spread among his fellow football players. The candid and endearing moment was captured on video and shared across social media platforms, including Meagan Glover's Facebook page and KATC TV 3's main Facebook account.
The video has garnered thousands of views within hours. Friends and fans flooded the comments section, teasing Gavin and praising his carefree spirit. One commenter suggested he deserved a movie role, while another tagged Gavin's mom, Pam, to share the delightful moment with her.
As the back-to-school season approaches and with it, the excitement of team sports, Gavin is undoubtedly becoming a fan favorite in Church Point. With his charming personality and memorable performance, the football field might witness some hip-involved celebrations. Some even joked that he should shoot a music video.
Nonetheless, despite the attention and newfound fame, Gavin Benoit remains grounded and focused on excelling both in the classroom and on the football field. While a singing career might not be on the horizon, he has already become an internet sensation and brought joy to many with his hilarious rendition of Shakira's classic hit.
As the Church Point Bears gear up for another exciting season, one thing is certain: Gavin Benoit has become more than just a football player; he's a local karaoke hero and a source of laughter for the community.
