Hi, everyone. There are only two days left this year. I have to clean the house and get some traditional New Year’s food now. Before that, I’d like to share some of my videos created on the karaoke social website “Utasuki” this year. It’s really fun to collaborate with other members.

I tried to hula dance.
These days I sing the disco songs from around 1980 wearing an Afro wig. My family doesn’t know about it. lol
Have a great new year!
Long time no blog post 😦 I hope you are all well. This year is almost over. I’m a member of the karaoke social site “Utasuki” and created many karaoke videos on the site this year. Let me show you some of them. Today I’d like to share the videos that I sang with Fumiko in. She is a fun person. We haven’t met but we sometimes sing together on the site.
The next post including other hilarious karaoke videos will be the last of this year. Coming soon 🙂
The members in Sing!Karaoke were excited yesterday. Halloween? No! We were excited because Smule added video to Sing!Karaoke. Now we can capture the video of our performances, such as playing instruments, adding visual effects and so on. That’s wonderful. I tried it, but my device iPad mini didn’t work. I wonder if only iPhone is allowed for now?

I heard from a member that iPad mini should be iPad Retina to create a video. Unfortunately, mine is not 😦
I wrote about music app called “Sing!Karaoke” by Smule before and really like it now. As I use it, I get to learn various things. One of them is “open mic”. You can sing any song by using open mic. Also, you can sing a free song solo offered by other kind members. Let me introduce one of my recordings. I sang a duet with “MelMaestro”, whose voice is awesome.
Autorap is another Smule’s app. It converts your talk to rap. I just read a newspaper paragraph.
Smule Guitar is fun too. I can’t play the guitar, but this app makes it possible to perform by swiping and tapping the screen. Better yet, you can perform the guitar in tune with your recording in Sing!Karaoke. Another app called Magic Piano is similar to it. It sounds by swiping and tapping. This is a little boring for me. I prefer playing the real piano.
This song cover is located on a karaoke social networking site named Utasuki. happyuan covered the Keri Hilson part; kly235 covered Kanye West; marshall covered Ne-Yo.
The original music video is here. Wow! It has been viewed over one hundred million times!
Check out more of my videos, including “Umbrella”:)
I sang a song called “The Cruel War” with another Utasuki member, Yu. I’m always impressed by his beautiful harmony. He says he distinguishes the notes only by listening to the song.
Check out more of my collaboration videos including Billy Joel’s song “The Longest Time” covered by Yu and I.
I’ve mentioned several karaoke websites before. Today I’d like to introduce you to “Utasuki” one of the karaoke social networking services in Japan. Do you know that karaoke began in Japan and spread throughout the world? There are so many karaoke places all over Japan. Utasuki members sing at any one of them, record themselves on camera, and upload their videos to the site. I’ve also posted my videos there since last year. That is fun! Check out the music archives at my blog.
Utasuki was upgraded this month. It used to be that only members could watch the videos, but now non-members can watch some of them. So, let me show you one of my videos. I think that the best thing, though, creating a collaboration with other members. I’d like to share a collaboration video “Lady Marmalade” covered by kly235, Lemon and I. kly235 is a unique and hilarious woman. Lemon is a charming lady who has a beautiful voice. Don’t you think it’s great that we can sing together on the ‘net even though we’ve never met each other?
