Karaoke is an activity which some people say they love, some people say they hate, but everyone ends up enjoying and singing a song. It’s said to have originated in Japan and it remains hugely popular there, while in the UK, karaoke bars do exist, however it is not such a common party activity. People in the UK don’t get the chance to do karaoke often, which is reason enough to book it for your party – it’s a real treat! Below are a few more reasons why we love karaoke and why it is ALWAYS a good addition to a party.
Live those childhood dreams of being a rock star:
Whether you wanted (and still do) to be Mick Jagger, Madonna or Prince – karaoke lets you live out your dreams of performing to a crowd and getting that standing ovation. For those 3 or 4 minutes worth of sing, you can be anyone you want to be.
Karaoke is good for the heath:
Japanese scientists released a study a few years ago detailing how participating in karaoke has positive health benefits. Singing and drinking (in moderation) with friends helped reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes. Singers use deep breathing which also helps the nervous system, while the cheering and social support we get from our friends helps boost self esteem.
As we get older, our jobs and lives seem to get more and more serious, so karaoke is a much needed outlet. It gives us the chance to joke around and be goofy – a well deserved break from the daily struggles of adult life.
Add some flare to your party:
Set your party apart with some karaoke. Lots of people tend to stick with the drinks and dancing combo for a ‘do’, but karaoke is a real crowd pleaser and will make your party stand out. Even if people are nervous and reluctant to get up on stage at the beginning, a couple of songs in and even the shyest people are fighting to get on the stage.
