The word karaoke comes from the Japanese words ‘kara’ meaning ’empty’ and ‘oke’ meaning ‘orchestra’. It first became popular in English in 1979

 

 

Karaoke is a Japanese word that refers to a performance in which a person sings along with recorded music. It’s a popular form of entertainment at restaurants and clubs: amateur singers choose their favourite well-known song to sing and then perform it for the crowd.

 

Bobby Bare – Detroit city

Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
I dreamed about them cotton fields of home
I dreamed about my mother, dear old pappy, sister and brother
And I dreamed about the girl who’s been waitin’ for so long
I want to go home
I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home
Home folks think I’m big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I’m just fine, yes they do
But by day I make the cars and by night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines
‘Cause you know I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I’ve just been wastin’ my time
You know what I’m gonna do?
I’m gonna take my foolish pride
Get it on a southbound freight and let it ride
I’m gonna go back to the loved ones
The ones I left waiting so far behind]
I want to go home, yeah
I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home [Can’t you hear me?]
I want to go home
Whoa, baby I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home [Somebody help me]
I want to go home, yeah
I want to go home, whoa oh
Oh, how I want to go home
Hmm, I want to go home

5 Tips for Singing Karaoke

Here are some other things to keep in mind about how to have a successful karaoke night:

Warm up your voice before singing so you can really hit those high notes! Follow along with this quick video on vocal warm ups for singers.
Look confident. Start with a smile and with your feet planted shoulder width apart. Make no apologies for being on that stage!
Pick a song you really know so you’re not always having to look at the lyrics on the screen. Don’t forget you have an audience that wants you to sing to them!
Use good vocal technique. Breathe low, and keep your sound placed in your mask rather than shouting into the microphone.
Practice at home! YouTube has many excellent channels, such as KaraFun, that can help you practice.
