DATING & KARAOKE
Imagine walking into a karaoke venue where people are sitting around tables chatting, prepping for their moment. Most singers wearing pieces of paper with their names and interests written on makeshift necklaces.
Where else can you get a read for someone’s taste in music, their ability to work a crowd, and their taste for adventure? Where else do you get such a perfect excuse to show off a little?
This is called a karaoke singles mixer and it’s awesome. While Moyagi hasn’t been able to host one of these events yet with current restrictions – we’re sure to do as soon as Covid-19 has been put to rest.
While it might seem like a singles event in a casual performance setting is setting up daters for failure – after all, it isn’t exactly an activity for the meek – the more you might think about it, the more ingenious the idea is. Let us put it this way: Where else can you get a read for someone’s taste in music, their ability to work a crowd, and their taste for adventure? Where else do you get such a perfect excuse to show off a little?
It is quite the experience to connect with a stranger, an acquaintance, or a life partner over karaoke. Add some food and beverages into the mix and you’ve just created a memories-formula. It’s no secret that music has the power to evoke an emotional response within us, but that’s particularly true with the act of performing music, singing, dancing, and drumming – which released feel-good endorphins in a way that possible listening doesn’t. Karaoke, though, melds all the best chemicals of performing with the anxiety of stage fright. The best way to look at it? Let go. Enter the musical realm and give the song you chose your spin on it. You’ll do great.
