Soul Singer Mayer Hawthorne Throwing His Own Detroit Halftime Show!

Filed under: Music MinuteFootball

Over 55,000 people aren't very happy that Nickelback was chosen to perform at halftime during the Detroit Lion's Thanksgiving day game against the Green Bay Packers.

Unfortunately for the thousands of unhappy campers NFL fans, a petition that gained national attention still didn't change the halftime show's headliner.

However, there IS an alternative!

Soul singer and Detroit native Mayer Hawthorne is holding his own halftime performance at the best venue he could think of — his parents house!

While taking a break from food and football, Mayer will be broadcasting a live performance with his dad on bass and local musicians comprising the rest of the band, explaining:

"I'm gonna play a short medley of favorites and some songs especially for Detroit. The band will be all local musicians from Detroit. We'll be watching the game upstairs!"

If you're trying to avoid Nickelback, we sincerely recommend checking this guy's performance out on game day here.

If you've never heard this guy before, check out the video below!

Listen To This: Kiss-Off!

Such a great breakup song!!!

Mayer Hawthorne does the retro thing very very well! But, the soulful crooner puts a modern spin on things, like in the just-released Mr. & Mrs. Smith-inspired video for his new single, The Walk.

Check out the awesome clip and tune (above)!
