The Karaoke Success
EMPOWERING SUCCESS THROUGH KARAOKE
One writer once said, “Let me write the songs of a nation and I can care less who writes his laws”. This statement is a remarkable statement on the power of music to change and influence lives. It is a testimony to the impact that music has on the development of a culture and civilization. Civilization has risen and fallen throughout history on the power of music and its remarkable content.
As great as this is, most of the times we have focused on the power and benefits of music in terms of its content and words and have forgotten the remarkable benefits of the act of singing itself. These benefits range from physical to emotional, psychological amongst others. It is my pleasure to introduce you to the remarkable benefits of the very act of singing itself, especially in the context of Karaoke. Stick to your chairs as we go through this journey together.
INTRODUCTION TO KARAOKE
Singing is as old as the existence of man itself. We have always sought to express our feelings, emotions and views through words expressed in music.
Karaoke is a technique that is meant to take music off the radar of just professional musicians and make it a reality and constant practice even for amateurs. Not only that, it is a powerful technique that is also helpful to the professional singers to sing better and improve their prowess at this task
What then is Karaoke?
Basically, Karaoke is a music technique where a singer sings with a microphone along with a prerecorded musical track. The musical track contains only the tune and the singer sings the lyrics and content of the music along with the tune that is playing from the gadget. In this instance, it is the instrumental version of the song that is recorded and played as the singer flows along to produce a great music. With Crowd Karaoke, the original song with vocals suppressed is used, so that is so beneficial to the singer and to the audience, whoever it is.
Karaoke originated from Japan, and it’s a Japanese term which means ‘Empty Orchestra’. This process of Karaoke singing is made possible and effective by the Karaoke machine. This machine has evolved a lot over a long period of time. The Karaoke player or machine plays the track of a song, projecting the lyrics of the song on a screen as the singer flows in sync with the tune. Today, some of these machines come with screens that display the music lyrics while others can be easily connected to computers to display the lyrics. With Crowd Karaoke, large monitors or video projections screens allow everyone to clearly see the lyrics for the songs.
There have been so many advances in karaoke, especially today in the 21st Century. It seems that there are multitudes of apps for smartphones, and even YouTube offers many songs of karaoke. A high importance to Crowd Karaoke is the protection of music rights, so you will never see any songs of Crowd Karaoke for sale to the public, or online
Karaoke is already becoming a standard go to and must have equipment in many bars and clubs and the practice is already gaining widespread adherence as many more people are seeing the huge benefits.
Before we look at the specific benefits of Karaoke, we look at the benefits of singing. And remember, these are not just the benefits of loving music but the benefit of being the singer yourself.
So, what are the health benefits of Singing?
Emotional benefits of singing: Singing has been recognized by researchers as a great source of pleasure and a great relief for anxiety. Singing releases hormones like the endorphins which produce a feeling of pleasure and ease; and the oxytocin which helps in the relief of anxiety and stress. Singing also activates the saccules, an organ in the ear which is anti-depressant. As a result, singing is very key to lowering the rates of depression which is already becoming a matter of worldwide concern even more than climate change. Singing will be a great antidote to this disaster.
Health benefits of Singing: Singing is not just an emotional aid, it also serves a great deal of physical benefits in the same line as exercises and workouts. Singing increases the number of antibodies in the body and as a result, it strengthens the immune system.
