From Ocean’s Eleven to his throwback leading-man aura, George Clooney has sometimes projected a Sinatra vibe — but he’s no Blue Eyes when it comes to singing. Nevertheless, the actor semi-reluctantly joined Neil Diamond in a rendition of “Sweet Caroline” Saturday night at the 26th annual Carousel of Hope Ball in Los Angeles where the Oscar winner was honored for his humanitarian efforts. He was presented with the Brass Ring award by Shirley MacLaine, who described him as the “most generous, sweetest, charming human being,” and the event raised $2.5 million for the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes.
Clooney only belted out a few words (“so good, so good, so good”), proving there are limits to his talents but none to his suavity.
