Will Forte strips down and swims in a fountain to sing James Ingram's 'Just Once' for charity

Forte took a dip for a "sizable donation" during Big Slick Celebrity Weekend.

Let it be known Will Forte will do what needs to be done to help the kids. Even if it means swimming in a public fountain while belting an early-80s quiet storm classic.

Forte was one of many celebrities attending Big Slick this weekend, and feeling in the charitable spirit, the former Saturday Night Live cast member took a dip for a "sizable donation" according to CNN's Jake Tapper, who documented the moment and posted the video on X.

"Someone offered to make a sizable donation to @ChildrensMercy for @BigSlickKC weekend if Will Forte  @OrvilleIV went into the hotel fountain and sang a verse of 'Just Once' by James Ingram," Tapper wrote, adding a link to donate "if you feel so inspired."

Forte belted out the verse, and even did a few laps in the fountain, which was not as cold as he thought it would be — but still "very cold."

"Just Once" was one of a pair of songs featuring Ingram on Quincy Jones' 1981 album, The Dude, that shot the then-29-year-old singer to stardom, earning him three Grammy nominations. He won Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his other hit from that album, "One Hundred Ways." Ingram died in 2019 from brain cancer.

He had no comment.
