THE BIG IDEA BEHIND THIS EVENT:
People don’t sing together anymore. Well, except if you’re in a band, or a church choir. And who even goes to church anymore? It’s a rare thing, to sing with others. Sometimes people will sing together if they’re at a show and a bunch of people know the words. But then, some people just want to hear the band, and not the person beside them. People don’t even sing together at karaoke! There, one person sings at a time, and if people sing together, it’s by accident.
Crowd Karaoke was created so that people can sing together unabashed, and dance while they do so. We don't know if the people attending will be good singers, but what we do know for SURE is that singing with other people is incredible fun. A funny thing happens: you feel like you’re all working toward something together. It’s very bonding.
Remember the last time you got drunk with a bunch of friends and some song came over the radio and you all spontaneously just started singing together and it was completely amazing? Yah – we’re trying to do that to you, multiple times, all night long.
