Singing in front of strangers may be nerve-wracking, but several students took the risk.
Laughter, applause and music filled McFeely’s Coffeehouse in the Ceddia Union Building (CUB) for the Activities Program Board’s (APB) “Don’t Forget the Lyrics.”
Approximately two dozen students came out for the event on Friday, Feb. 7.
Singer Justin Bieber and rapper Eminem were two artists students had the option to could sing to.
Coordinators gave participants two tickets for singing an entire karaoke song and were given one ticket for participating in “Don’t Forget the Lyrics.”
Among the prizes were a karaoke machine, Apple Air Pods, three $30 Spotify gift cards and a $100 Ticketmaster gift card.
APB’s Kiayrah Wehr was grateful for the turnout.
“We wanted to do something different from our usual karaoke nights, hopefully getting more students interested in the event,” Wehr said.
Freshman Dawin Sackie said he enjoys physical events such as karaoke.
