Caroline Adams

General Manager, Voodoo Tiki Bar & Lounge

As a dance Mom to my 11-year-old daughter Addie, whom I adore, I’ve seen some pretty intense competition and can’t wait to bring my own fierceness to the stage for such a great cause! The American Lung Association does such amazing work with the community striving toward the goal of everyone breathing easy, and I think it’s great that we can help raise money and awareness in such a fun and dynamic way. My dear friend, co-worker and fellow Lip Sync battler, Ace, lost her mother after her breast cancer spread to her lungs in 2002. She was well-known around Charleston for singing and dancing, so it’s a perfect fit for us to celebrate her life by performing in the Lip Sync Battle.

I’ve run Voodoo for 12 years, and if you’ve ever been in our tiki bar on a Friday or Saturday, you know we play the hits to keep everyone dancing. We’ve even been known to do some dancing and lip syncing behind the bar ourselves. I’ll be bringing the Voodoo Crew for backup—we’re a wild bunch with a ton of flair, so I hope you VOTE for us!


Dr. Yanis Bellil

Lowcountry Hematology and Oncology

As a medical oncologist, Dr. Bellil has a passion for lung health and treating and preventing lung disease. His practice at Lowcountry Hematology and Oncology is primarily focused on lung and breast cancer, following a Duke clinical research fellowship where he focused on lung cancer. A Charleston native and College of Charleston graduate, he attended USC School of Medicine and completed a residency at Maryland. He is an avid surfer and enjoys spending time at the beach with his wife Shelly and their two kids.


Lori DeNicola

Owner & Lead Designer, Petaloso

Hi, I’m Lori and I cannot wait to tease up my hair, put on a good ‘ole fashion leotard and light up the stage for such an incredible cause! Ok, ok, let me put on my serious pants and tell you a bit more about myself and just why you’re going to want to cast your vote for me. I have been advocating for the American Lung Association for nearly 9 years now after having lost my father to his battle with  lung disease, COPD. I could not be more honored to be performing in his memory and to support this cause that holds such a special place in my heart. Breathing is the most beautiful innate gift we are given and no one should struggle to breathe, especially young children. I admire the work the ALA does with Camp Breathe Easy, a camp for children with asthma and I hope we can raise lots of dough to help support the camp along with the ALA’s other wonderful programs.  I’ll be performing in Lip Sync for Lungs for all of those who are battling with lung disease or know someone who is.

My occupation?! Well, for the past 10 years I’ve been involved with two of my favorite things, flowers and events. I’m a local floral designer, owner of Petaloso and Pay It Forward Productions.  When I’m not in my studio creating florals for our clients you can catch me at any given coffee shop working on the Charleston Coffee Cup.

I can’t wait to meet you all on September 14th!  Thank you for your support!

Ashley Brook Perryman

Professional Makeup and Hair Artist & Owner of ABP Makeup

Hey hey!

I’m ABP, and I’m SO excited for the opportunity to join this amazing group of contestants to sing our hearts out for such an amazing cause. Working in the beauty industry is wonderful, but making a difference and helping others is what really makes my heart “sing”. I would be so honored to have your support for this cause, in any amount!

I was a 90’s kid and grew up watching MTV when the music videos were everything to me. The choreography, hair, makeup (the good and bad)—I loved it all. This is definitely a dream come true to be a part of.

I’m participating in this Lip Sync Battle for everyone who has been affected in one way or another by lung disease, for their families, and those currently going through it.  I am learning so much through this process about everything the ALA does, and I’m very happy to be able to help in any way that I can to change the lives of many through their programs and services.

I am a makeup artist of 13 years and counting, graduated the makeup designory of LA (MUD) and am now based in Charleston while traveling often for different shoots. I do everything from New York Fashion Week, to working on a commercial on an actual hog farm in Iowa,  and a -23 degrees in a Nebraska blizzard. (True story!) I love what I do so much, and enjoy every adventure as it’s always different than the last. I also own a custom blended lipstick line, “ABP Makeup”. My lip sheers launched last year and it has been so much fun creating and naming shades that are universal to every skin tone. I’m super proud of the line.

I am married to my amazing husband Ross, and our favorite thing to do is spend time with our sweet pups Minnie, Lilly, and Zoey who definitely run the household. We are big believers in adopting/rescuing animals and strongly encourage everyone to please adopt.

Can’t wait to see you all at the Lip Sync For Lungs Live Battle II this fall!!

Kim Powell

Spa Owner & Regional Developer, Woodhouse Day Spa

My sister Kathy, who is a backup singer, used to push me 10 paces behind her so that no one could hear me when we performed our family skits…so let’s just say, I’m perfect for a Lip Sync Competition! I am honored to be participating in such a fun event for such a serious cause.  My husband Keith, who is from Beaufort, SC, lost his Dad to lung cancer, which has motivated us to do whatever we can to help eradicate lung cancer and lung disease from this planet and ease the suffering of anyone currently undergoing treatment.  I will be performing in his memory.

I have owned the Woodhouse Day Spa in Mount Pleasant for two years now, and we love to serve this community and help spoil our guests in the spa seven days a week!  I’m happy to say that we were a proud Milli Vanilli Sponsor of the first Lip Sync For Lungs Live Battle last January. For the Live Battle II, I’ll be the one on stage with my three sons, Buckley (23), Bowen (21) and Christian (18) on hand to help me perform with some of my friends and family.

I also co-own a home fragrance and candle line, 1670 Charlestowne, to #sharethelight of this magnificent city and help impact the International African American Museum. My husband and I have also owned Summit Industrial Flooring for 27 years. We moved to Charleston from Ohio in 2014 and spend our free time boating, fishing and exploring our new home.

I humbly ask for your support as I ROCK THIS on September 14th!
