Georgia On My Mind, with a 35 man choir.
TV Land Awards: A Celebration of Classic TV aka Annual TV Land Awards is an American television awards ceremony that generally commemorates shows now off the air. It is presented in a manner that spoofs other entertainment award ceremonies. Created in 2003 by Executive Producer Michael Levitt, the awards are hosted and broadcast by the TV Land network. Awards are given in various categories (which change from year to year) with input from visitors to TV Land's website who can vote there for their favorite choices. Awards can and have been given to both individual actors/actresses and to entire television series. Ray Charles was in the first award show, directed by Glenn Weiss.
The show was taped at the Palladium in Hollywood on Sunday, March 2, 2003, and was telecast on the TV Land cable channel on March 12. Photo here.  
A demo video, for consideration of Grammy Awards, is sometimes for sale on various websites (like this one).
