Karaoke Contest: One Filipino Family Takes Karaoke Singing to Another Level

Now everybody will surely want to join in!

The holiday season came and passed but many people still can’t get over their unforgettable moments with friends and family. Though Christmas is widely celebrated around the world, Filipinos exceptionally prepare for the holidays even months before the said event. While children go from house to house to sing Christmas songs for people at home, others attend the early masses held before Christmas which are called the ‘Misa de Gallo’ or ‘Simbang Gabi’ in Filipino. It is truly a joyous time for Filipinos and there are ‘traditions’ which never get out of style.

One tradition that will never be absent from Filipino gatherings is singing. It is no secret that many Filipinos across the globe love to sing, as seen in many famous talent shows around the world. Filipinos are so fond of singing that having a karaoke (a form of entertainment, originally from Japan, in which recordings of the music but not the words of popular songs are played, so that people can sing the words themselves) is a “must” during celebrations. However, not many people are confident enough to sing especially with lots of people watching them.

To change the minds of their family and friends, one family decided to take karaoke singing up a notch. So how does it work? Apparently, there is an alotted prize for every specific score you get from singing. The prizes? Money! Who doesn’t need money nowadays, right? Many netizens were so amused, that they intend to do the same thing on their future celebrations. Would you sing for money? I know I would!
