Who doesn't love some good karaoke?
This popular night out activity that many of us enjoy today, originated in Japan back in 1976. The essence of it, however, has been a part of the Japanese culture for much longer .
This is what many of us love about karaoke…there is no pressure to be the best singer in the room. In fact, the best performances are those that are done with passion, not necessarily skill! At it's core, karaoke is all about having having fun and enjoying time in our community!
