Maren Morris + Shaquille O’Neal At ‘The Event’ Fundraiser

Proof positive that ‘opposites attract’, 5′ 1″ pint-sized country star Maren Morris and the larger-than-life 7′ 1″ basketball legend posed together in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas in support of the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation’s “The Event” fundraiser.

Along with sets from Maroon 5, H.E.R., Pitbull and John Mulaney, Morris performed for the gala that reportedly raised more than $3.2 million to benefit The Boys and Girls Club and Communities and Schools throughout Las Vegas and Atlanta. 

In a statement about his event, Shaq said “A lot of great energy here,” and addressing his philanthropic choice, he called the experience “very rewarding.” “I live in Atlanta and Vegas, so you’re riding around on the highway, you can see me,” “You’ll see me at a gas station, you know, I like to trust places where I’m living at.” 

At one point during the benefit concert, Shaq joined Adam Levine and his band on stage to perform their hit, “This Love.” that marked the pop/rock front man’s first public appearance since finding himself at the center of a cheating scandal last month.
