Karaoke Night brought excitement to the Kennesaw State Commons on Oct. 7 as students participated in singing while enjoying the company of their peers.
Students had the opportunity to eat dinner provided by the Commons while singing along to their peers’ songs of choice. Laughs and smiles were shared as students reminisced about their favorite throwback songs and newly-discovered songs. Many students participated, lining up to sing their song of choice from any genre and decade.
As Karaoke Night continued, Fried Chicken Thursday was simultaneously hosted at the Commons. Students ate fried chicken, collard greens, macaroni and cheese and barbecue chicken. The combination of great food and singing helped students kick back and forget about the stress of school and midterms.
Many music lovers participated in singing a range of songs from different genres and decades. Songs like I’ve Got Sunshine by the Temptations and I Want You Back by the Jackson 5 were two old-school songs played, with students joining in to sing along.
More recent songs were picked by students such as the Neighbourhood’s popular song Sweater Weather, which fit the mood of autumn. Even sad songs such as Sam Smith’s Way Too Good at Goodbyes kept students grooving along.
As the night went on, more students filed in to participate in the karaoke session to join in on the music fun. A comfortable atmosphere filled the Commons as many students sang their hearts out in a judgment-free zone.
In the past, campus services hosted many events that helped students settle down and have fun after long days of classes. They continue to host interactive events such as Trivia Night where students’ knowledge is put to the test in a series of quizzes. Recently, Jazz Night took place at the Commons where students heard a selection of jazz pieces during dinner.
Karaoke Night seemed to put students in good spirits, as students were smiling while waiting for their turns or for their friends to sing next. The next karaoke event, Hooty-Boo Halloween Karaoke, will take place Oct. 29 at the Legacy Gazebo 7-9 p.m.
