Everyone is a star on karaoke night. Clubs around the world regularly hold karaoke events, parties are conducted around the theme, and it’s popular around the world. All you need to know is the tune – lyrics are displayed on a screen for you. It’s the ultimate singalong.
The name karaoke means empty orchestra and the world owes the invention of karaoke to Japanese musician, Daisuke Inoue, in 1971. However, the Karaoke Sing-Along System was developed and patented by the Filipino inventor, Roberto del Rosario, in 1975.
There are literally thousands of songs from which to choose. It’s a good idea to have some songs in mind well before you get on stage, but it’s equally important to understand that your favorite song may not be the one best suited for your voice or style.
Think about the songs that you most enjoy singing along with and how well your voice meshes with the high and low notes. There are also karaoke CDs that you can purchase that provide the instrumental versions of songs with which to practice your vocal skills.
Karaoke knows no age boundaries, as demonstrated by the top 10 most requested karaoke songs. They’re classics that have withstood the test of time by being easy to sing for just about everyone. Even people that weren’t born when the songs made their debut are familiar with them.
