Aside from food, singing karaoke at my family gatherings is one of the highlights of those events. Just combine that with lots of alcohol and you have yourself a party, my friend!
I’m never the type to volunteer to sing, and I’m usually forced into it for pure entertainment. When I was younger, my family would bribe me to sing with money, and I obviously wouldn’t budge until it got to an acceptable amount, because really? Don’t lowball me!
The song I’d always pick to sing was Madonna’s “Take a Bow” because it matched my vocal range perfectly, wasn’t too over the top like a Whitney or Mariah tune, and there is just a slight reach during the bridge of the song to throw some power into it. Then there’d be the occasional Filipino/Tagalog song, which I’d always charge more for because they weren’t easy for me to sing.
What’s your favorite song to sing for karaoke? Do you sing ballads, current pop songs, or do you turn into a rapper? Oh, the possibilities!
