So What is the Best Karaoke Song for You?
When we are doing our karaoke shows, people often ask me, "What song should I sing?" or "What is the best song for my voice?"
The answer is very simple: sing the songs you sing best. I know that sounds like a trick answer, but it isn't. If you are asking what songs you might sing, you most likely want to present a great song to the audience. Therefore, no matter how much you admire Beyonce or Martina McBride, if you cannot hit those notes, I would say their songs are not for your voice.
That does not mean you could not sing them just for fun - after all that is what karaoke is all about! But, if you are the more serious singer and want to present your best karaoke songs, then choose the songs you sing best!
See some of my personal favorites listed below and see how you like them!
How do you know what you sing best?
Singing will feel effortless.There will be no straining, screaming, or pushing. If you try to sing songs that are out of your range or that are not in a good key for you, you may damage your voice. The trick is to find several songs that you consider your best karaoke songs.
I usually divide these into warm-up songs (songs that are super easy that I could sing backwards and forwards any day of the week). Then I have several showcase songs. These are my hardest best karaoke songs, but I don't sing them if I feel like I cannot hit ALL the notes easily.
