Faith Hill thought she was just presenting Reba McEntire with the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award. But with $100,000 on the line she unexpectedly ended up performing during last month's 13th Annual Celebrity Fight Night in Phoenix, Arizona, which benefits charity.Hill writes on her Web site that "after the dinner and awards, it was announced from the stage that someone would donate $100,000 if I would perform `This Kiss.' I didn't have my band and I wasn't expecting to perform but how could I turn that down!"

The event raised nearly 4 and a-half million dollars. Up for auction was dinner with McEntire at her Beverly Hills home which brought $250,000 -- twice. McEntire served as emcee and spontaneously treated guests to impromptu performances throughout the night. Also on hand at the event was Pam Tillis, who sang the national anthem.
