Karaoke Night has taken place on campus before, but it has not made an appearance in recent years. This year, the Student Activities Council decided to bring back this night of singing.
The idea was inspired by Cabaret Night, a musical event hosted in October by students from the theater department.
To begin reviving Karaoke Night, SAC attained new karaoke equipment, to replace the outdated technology previously used and updated its music selection. SAC members said they hope these improvements will encourage students to attend.
“I am most excited to see the participation,” SAC member Alexis Graves said. “You don’t have to be good. You just have to want to have a good time.”
The two hosts of the evening will be Josh Potter and Dakota Jordan.
The database of music has thousands of songs available, including ’50s doo-wop and today’s Top 40. A list of song choices will be available at the event; however, students are not necessarily limited to the list. Requests will be taken, but options with profanity or negative messages can be denied by SAC members.
No prior sign up is necessary, but SAC members are searching for between two and five students who would be willing to kick off the night and asked that volunteers would post their name and what song they would like to perform on the SAC Facebook page. Those who attend karaoke night, whether to watch and support or to participate, will receive $1 off drinks.
Karaoke Night will be held from 7 until 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, in the Hub.
