I did not have a voice.
After decades of abuse, I literally spoke in a way that was inaudible.
So I started karaoke.
About five years ago, two of my very big and tall friends took me to karaoke for the first time, and they joined me in singing Bohemian Rhapsody.
There is a video of this somewhere.
You cannot hear me at all on the recording.
Now I am going three to four times a night.
There are folks who come who are in their seventies and eighties, and then there are those who just turned twenty one.
We encourage all, and to my friends I express how much I dislike a song.
Some people have a natural energy that gets the whole crowd moving as soon as start singing.
Bars are for songs and harmony.
Community happens in these places.
Some karaoke djs have an amazing collection of songs.
Some barely have the hits.
