Take friendship to new heights.
On October 1st Maren Morris performed at The Event charity gala hosted by his Shaquille O’Neal Foundation at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. That’s where the country star met Shaquille O’Neal herself and posted a photo of the two together, poking fun at their extreme size difference.
“Tall guys,” she captioned the Instagram pic, which has since gone viral and references her single of the same name.
At a petite height of 5ft 1in, Maren is almost two feet shorter than Shaq, one of the biggest NBA stars of all time. The retired fan-favorite basketball legend is 6ft 11in tall, as he clarified on TNT’s Inside the NBA 2020.
In addition to Maren, other cast members were also present at The Event Maroon 5, pit bull, YOU and comedian John Mulaney. The gala, sponsored by the Pepsi Stronger Together initiative, raised more than $3.2 million. Proceeds will benefit the Boys and Girls Club and Communities In Schools in Las Vegas and Atlanta, two of Shaq’s hometowns.
“It’s a great honor and an amazing lineup to be a part of,” Maren told E! News. “And I’m very glad I was asked.”
