While you want to choose a karaoke song that is appropriate for both your vocal range and gender, there are a few other things to consider as well. One of the most important things to consider is what kind of event you’ll be singing at. Also, take into consideration the kind of crowd that will be there. For instance, if it’s a typical Friday night party with the younger crowd, you don’t want to get up in front of everyone and sing gospel music. You might belt the tune and sound like a thousand angels singing, but chances are, it’s not going to go over well.
By the same token, if you’re singing for a group of seniors at a retirement home, the last thing you want to do is scream out some Metallica or Def Lepard. Just like any good entertainer, you have to choose a song that the crowd is going to embrace…something they can sing along to and enjoy. In addition to this, consider whether you’ll be singing a solo or with a group. This can help you choose great songs. If you’re singing alone, you don’t want to choose songs that are great for a group or duet. Also, if you’re singing with others, the last thing you want to do is choose a song that leaves them no room to sing along with you.
By following these tips and tricks, you can choose a song that will be perfect for the event, the crowd, and the singers.
