Chattanooga, TN – Champion is a singer from Mississippi. Monday night, at the Bessie Smith Strut, he played a very energetic set. He hopped off the stage, danced with the crowd, played the harmonica... at one point, Champion even sat down in a random audience member's folding chair. Some people didn't know what to think... the singer, stealing some random person's chair. The audience laughed, and had never seen anything like it.
