Love the limelight​

Karaoke is a guaranteed way to keep party guests engaged from the start of the evening to the final curtain.

Here are our top tips:

Your device is already a karaoke machine. . .

Heavy, fragile and impractical karaoke machines are a thing of the past. These days you can get software that will run karaoke from your devices, such as iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Windows phones and tablets and all computers. No matter where you are in the world, you can access karaoke platforms and enjoy thousands of HD karaoke videos and unlimited singing 24/7.

Want to step things up still further? You can stream karaoke lyrics and backgrounds to your TV for a wider screen, then simply add in some home speakers and maybe a microphone, or two.

Then all you have to do is decide whether to charge your guests entry, with all proceeds going to getting books to children in need, or whether to ask people to ‘donate to sing’.

Spread the word! Social media will help you appeal to would-be warblers. Community pages, town pages, and parent’s groups, are the perfect place to advertise a karaoke. Get creative with your posts, tell people you are raising money for storybooks for children in need and ask them to share your post. Remember to include the date, time, and venue and a link to Kashfi’s Children.
