Karaoke Time

I know that karaoke is a joke among truly talented artists, but it's a lot of fun for those of us who are not so blessed. I love to sing and my husband shares that love. We have a great time singing, just the two of us.

A lot of times we invite 9 or 10 people over to sing. Each person or couple bring a dish for a pot luck. We sing, we visit, we eat and a good time is had by all.

We used to bowl on leagues back in the day. After we bowled we would go to the bar. That was my first experience with karaoke. I finally got the courage with my daughter, to get up and sing. That was so scarey.I had never spoken or sang in public before so I was a nervous wreck. But in all truth, most of the people in the bar don't even listen, so it was not that bad. I finally got used to singing in front of people. I didn't like bars much so we bought a karaoke machine of our own and started collecting C D s. My husband and I would sing 2 or 3 times a week.Those were great times. learning to sing together. It takes a great deal of time to find the songs your voice is right for. Slow songs or fast ones. High songs or low songs that are fun to do. Then when you get a few songs on your list , you sing them over and over, until you feel you have them down, and gradually add one more , then another.

When we first started singing we thought we were singing good, so we recorded ourselves. It was a real shock...not so good after all. As we continued to sing we improved and were not so bad. Everyone wants to improve in whatever they do, but you don't have to be a great singer to have a good time. Some of us sing good, some of us sing all right, and some of us sing, not so good but a good time is had by all.

There are karaoke contests if you want to compete.Some of the contestants are very good singers. There is a huge amount of talent our there. Some of them could be great singers. The trouble is only a few make it big. That is not our aim in singing. We just feel the joy.

You would be surprised at how many seniors are singing karaoke these days. Karaoke is a truly fun time. It really makes you feel good.

Well that's it for this time, see you soon?
