Yes, Karafun has TV themes in its catalog.  For some, we channelled our inner child.

The past Saturday night, we had our growing karaoke event.  Twelve were present at our karaoke event including the new JET participants.  Our karaoke program of choice is Karafun.  Some members brought drinks and snacks.  Karafun’s catalog even contained famous TV theme songs like from The Transformers, Beverley Hillbillies, and The Flinstones (but there was no Jetsons’ theme song).

JETAA Karaoke Night

“Sometimes, I do need to go karaoke, sometimes I need to relax.” – Jackie Chan

JETAA Prairies Karaoke Night

 

On May 12th, we had our first Karaoke Night!  Once you do karaoke in Japan, it’s very hard to shake the habit off after returning to your home country.   If you are wondering which karaoke machine we used, we used Karafun.  Flight of Conchords songs ruled the evening.  If you somehow didn’t get the chance to go, don’t worry!  We will hold another JETAA Prairies Karaoke Night again!  So, stay tuned!
