So we had a Young Single Adult (read: a bunch of sober Mormons) activity here last night. The activity was karaoke on Guapo's "MagicSing" karaoke microphone. We took it to the States with us this summer and it saw some limited, reluctant use (except by my mom, who would fit in quite well with the Brazilians), but not a lot.
Brazilians + MagicSing = Good times.
Sober Brazilians are WAY MORE fun than Sober Americans. Not to mention that even the ones who don't speak hardly any English know lots of American songs. They liked ones well known songs that you would expect like all the Beatles songs, YMCA, La Bamba, etc. but then every once in a while they would all sing one together perfectly in one collective loud voice-like some song by Smokey Robinson that I'm pretty sure I've never heard before in my life. ???
Anyway here's just a little clip from the VERY FIRST guy who went. Nobody was even warmed up at this point:
By the end of the night there were back-up singers, dancers, back-up dancers, and people waving their open cell phones in the air like cigarette lighters. All in our little family room.
The whole thing was pretty amusing!
