Denise Richards Sings Really Bad For a Good Cause

Denise Richards will not be getting a recording contract anytime soon. And we should all be thanking out lucky stars for that.

While in Chicago for a fundraiser for the Kidney Cancer Association (her mom died of the disease about a year ago), the actress attended a Cubs game and wanted to set up an informational booth at Wrigley Field during the game. Cubs management agreed -- but only if Denise would bless them with her, um, talent.

"In return, they said, 'Will you sing?' " Denise told E! Online. "So I said yes, because it's for a good cause and we want to raise awareness about kidney cancer."

"I'm clearly not a singer," she says. "I wasn't doing it to show off my pipes. Thank God I wasn't singing the national anthem. But I thought it would be fun...I had no idea the backlash I would get."

Her rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" pretty bad -- did you see the looks on the faces of the people in the crowd? But Denise says she's well aware she has no future in making records -- she really just did it for a good cause

"It took everything in me to get up there and do that," Denise said. "My dad and my sister kept saying, 'Just remember you're doing this for Mom,' so that's how I got through it. It's just unfortunate that doing something good was turned into such a negative."

I disagree! It's not a negative at all -- just funny.
