Do you know that one stranger who sang in community choirs bonded faster with the people around? Imagine that you’re hanging out and see someone busking on the street with your favourite jams; you’d wanted to stop and watch the performance regardless of their singing skills and performance quality. Music helps to bring people together.
Karaoke has been so popular for over half a century. Have you ever thought about the reason behind its success? Various studies published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology in 2013 claimed that music is closely related to one of our most basic human desires: To feel connected to other people. Karaoke, without a doubt, can be a powerful tool for doing so.
Surveys suggested that Karaoke could contribute to the participants a stronger ability to break the ice more easily. The ultimate purpose of karaoke isn’t exclusively just for those who can sing, but an invitation for anyone and everyone, anywhere. To belt out a recognisable and familiar tune, it would be irresistible for the audience to sing along with. It can bring people together to appreciate music and creates a joyful and relaxing atmosphere.
