"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



when someone asks me if I've done karaoke. Granted, it was in Macy's, but I did it! We had an event for "Shop for a Cause" where the customers donate money to charity and in return they get coupons, so they brought in karaoke for the customers. The customer's weren't really into it at first, but all of the employees were! The first song 4 of us sang as a group was "YMCA." We thought about turning it around and spelling MACY, but it didn't work that well. There were some other employees that decided to face the crowd (more like 4 people) and even three of the managers go up there and sang a song together. It was hilarious! Everyone was supposed to be in their own departments, but since it was game day, there weren't that many customers so we were all watching people sing. Another girl and I got up to sing another song. We were debating on "Love is a Battlefield" and "Don't Stop Believin'" but we both thought that the first one would be more fun and entertaining though so we got up there and did out best rendition of Pat Benatar. I was a little giggly because I hadn't done it before and I found it funny, but other than that, it was a ton of fun! I would love to do it again somewhere that's not work, with onlookers who aren't my co-workers. Overall though, it was a great way to pass the time and we raised a lot of money that day so it was well worth it!

I really wish I had the videos of the performances, but sadly, I didn't take any :(

  1. Sounds like fun, and love. I like that all of you did this together.
    This makes me want to do karaoke. The closest I have come to singing is rock band with my sisters! :)
