While actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael were out promoting their upcoming concert at Guild Hall in Easthampton, New York on Friday, August 4th, they opened up about making a surprise appearance for a great cause.

The brothers set up a surprise the with police chief Michael Brown. “We set it up so that he started singing “Footloose” at karaoke, and then he’s like, ‘Oh, this is not going well. I need help.’ And we came out.” the brothers told Scott Shannon on WCBS FM.

The Alexandria Police Foundation partnered with Kevin Bacon’s non-profit to raise money for the department which includes officers Kevin Jobe, Nicole Battaglia and Alexander Jensen, who defended United States congressmen when they were attacked by a gunman during their baseball practice on June 14 of this year.
