On New Year’s Eve, we went over to a friend’s house. It was a fun, kid-friendly party, and they had a new type of karaoke machine. It is an amplifier speaker, with a microphone stand in it, that you can connect to a tablet or other music device. The kids (and this adult) had fun with it, so I thought I would get one for the house.
Because I don’t mind that kind of noise so much. Screaming with no purpose…well, no. Singing off-key to Frozen’s songs…this I can handle.
Anya loves to sing. I did, too, when I was a kid. I would make up songs on my solo trail rides, and serenade my horses in what was surely horrifically off-key, but songs sung with gusto. I would have LOVED to have had something like this as a kid (much to the rest of the family’s horror, I’m sure).
I took it out of the box and we got it going. I didn’t find the same one as our friends had, but it was close. One thing is that you need to have the device below it’s max volume level or there is a lot of feedback on it. I also bought an extra microphone, as I have two children, so two mics were pretty much a given.
They had great fun singing off key and with gusto…as they should.
Anya does a mean “Do you want to build a snowman” from Frozen. She’s got that one nailed I tell you.
Kai is more interested in singing “Monster” from Skillet. He’s a rocker, that one. \oo/
