"iPad + Karaoke", the newest experiences you've never had before.

We're proud of introducing our newly developed and the 1st in the
world Karaoke song requesting system, called "KJ touch R for iPad".

As you see in the movie, you can;

-Search your song "by language", "from new songs", by artist", "by
title", and "from history" which shows the songs that have sung by
someone lately.
-Request the song you found out.
-Pause, restart and stop the song which is playing.
-Change the key tones.
-Rearrange the requested song orders (queues) with drag & drop.
-Request your song with song number by using 'Num pad" screen.

You don't have to flick the fat and heavy song books any more. All you have to do is, "touch and sing"! You must love it!
You'll be able to use this incredible karaoke tool in our venue, Karaoke Shout in Astoria, NY by the end of this month.

Can't wait? Me, too.

"After school KARAOKE program, with NY de Volunteer"

Introduction of Japanese Culture through Karaoke to American Children

Article on Shuukan New York Seikatsu (2/6)
Title: Introduction of Japanese Culture through Karaoke to American Children

NY de Volunteer (Executive Director, Noriko Hino), the non-profit organization which contributes social action programs and promotion of mutual cultural understanding between the U.S. and Japan held a Karaoke event for children age 6 to 13 at the Jackie Robinson Recreational Center in Manhattan with collaboration of President Mike Kida of Karaoke Champ.

The event setup was modeled after the most popular American TV show, “American Idol,” which sparked a Karaoke boom in the U.S. 15 people volunteered to provide direction for about 50 children who were mostly Hispanic and Afro-American. The children formed groups and chose songs they wanted to sing. Groups competed to show expression and teamwork. Beyonce’s and Michel Jackson’s songs were the most popular ones chosen. After a practice period, the groups presented their songs. The competition was aimed at forming teamwork, which is one of the most important virtues in Japan. During the presentation, even quiet, introverted children transformed into great entertainers once the music started. The Japanese volunteers were blown away with the children’s sense of rhythm that may have been developed by their exposure to more rhythmical western music. Contact info: Tel: (212) 932-7208, email: noriko@nydevolunteer.org

<Scientists claim: karaoke nights out are good for your health!>

Interesting! Recently, not only the recreation therapist of NYS Psychiatric Institute, but also the Japanese scientists who found drinking and singing with friends helped reduce heart disease and strokes, have claimed the karaoke nights out are good for your health.

According to researches, the Professor recommended karaoke bars as one way for business persons to cope with stress. "Singers use deep breathing, which is good for the nervous system", he said. "After singing, they usually receive applause. It is a good kind of social support, and helps in the face of adverse occasions or stressful events."

Briefly, Karaoke and drinking with your friend will make you healty, more and more. What a smashing idea.

<Sing Karaoke and get healthy! >

Karaoke is fun! But not only that, Karaoke can make you better! Karaoke can alleviate your stress! Singing Karaoke is good exercise! So good for your diet! Sing Karaoke and make Karaoke friends!

  • Karaoke can alleviate your stress!
  • Singing Karaoke is good exercise! So good for your diet!
  • Sing Karaoke and make Karaoke friends!

"It has been my observation that for many of the patients that we treat, people who are withdrawn and have low self-esteem and low self-confidence, they somehow find the courage to sing karaoke. Maybe it's the power of holding a microphone, maybe it is because this is supposed to be silly and fun, but many step up and are able to enjoy themselves and have a good time, and seem proud of their success."
