    Karaoke For Your Health

    Happy-Family-singing-karaoke-together-e1419537193917

    Let’s be entirely honest, singing karaoke is not everyone’s idea of a good time. For some it may be embarrassing or spark a fit of anxiety. BUT let’s talk for a moment about why singing karaoke could be awesome for you.

    Dr Michael Roizen MD who, along with Dr Oz, has authored 8 NY Times Bestselling books has this to say about singing karaoke.

    “Singing (on or off key) improves breathing—and that’s good for many parts of your body and brain. According to a recent Japanese study (of course!), the benefits of karaoke are far-reaching. Singing Sinatra—or even Aerosmith—relieves stress and boosts self-esteem and confidence, while also building social connections—all major life extenders. Plus, families that karaoke together build bonds and banish conflict.
    There haven’t been studies on how karaoke affects listeners, but listening to joyful music (and what’s joyful is always a personal opinion) reduces blood pressure, so if you enjoy what you’re singing or listening to, be a rock star or a lounge lizard and embrace karaoke”

    Make the Song Your Own

    When performing a song that was composed by someone else there are a few different approaches.

    One way is to replicate the song note for note as is often done with classical music. Another way is to completely change the feel and genre of the song. These two young Caribbean artists, Conkarah and Rosie Delmah (14 years old), have done just that.

    Check out this reggae version of Adele’s very popular song “Hello”.

    I dare you not to bob your head to the soulful beat.

    Tori Kelly and James Bay

    https://tune.pk/video/6410145/tori-kelly-james-bay-let-it-go-and-hollow-grammy-awards-2016

    If you missed Tori Kelly and James Bay’s performance at the Grammy’s, do yourself a favor and check it out. This was their first ever Grammy performance and it did not disappoint. Both Kelly and Bay were individually nominated in the best new artist category.

    Best “new” artist is a fairly inaccurate term. These artists have been grooming their talents for many many years long before they are given the title of best new artist.

    Tori Kelly built a massive YouTube following with 8 years of hard work, over a million followers. James Bay, a British singer/songwriter, caught the attention of a Republic Records A&R after a fan uploaded a video to YouTube of him performing at an open mic in London, and within a week he was signed to the label.

    Every day thousands of hopeful young musicians are following in Kelly and Bays’ footsteps posting videos of themselves singing their hearts out. They are on YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and Periscope; using every platform possible in hopes that maybe one day they too can be considered the best new artist.

    This year’s Grammy went to Meaghan Trainor who became most popular for her song “All about That Bass” but Bay and Kelly’s live performance definitely left its mark. We’re looking forward to great things from these two talented artists.

    The Show Must Go On…

    It’s every singers’ worst nightmare. You’ve spent weeks and weeks preparing, invested loads of money and creative energy, and then some one else drops the ball. Whether it’s a dead microphone, an out of tune guitar, or your accompaniment track begins to skip around, every performer has had to face some form of unexpected difficulty live…. in front of an nature audience.

    Two of the biggest names in popular music today, Adele and Justin Beiber, have been receiving criticism for their Grammy performances last night. They were both enduring sound difficulties during their performances. What a nerve wrecking experience that must have been for them.

    Heres the beautiful part about these two professionals, they kept going and kept smiling. Sometimes that’s the best strategy. Mistakes will happen, some things are beyond our control no matter how prepared we may be. The show must go on and one bad performance should never define an artist. We have to get back up, punch a pillow if necessary, and go for it again. Both Justin and Adele handled their experience with class. There’s a good lesson there for us all.
