San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 9, 2007
In response to needs of the ever growing karaoke community, The Karaoke Beat has launched a unique interactive website that allows users to share, vote and influence opinions related to karaoke music, KJs and karaoke bars/night clubs and more with millions of others fans.
From American Idol to Sony Playstation's successful SingStar karaoke video game franchise, it seems that everyone wants to sing along. Today's Karaoke music craze attracts more than 30 million enthusiasts making it the second largest hobby in the world. It's popularity is apparent in the ever growing number of karaoke music contests, video games, media programs, karaoke bars, clubs and stores.
The launch of TheKaraokeBeat.com coincides with the launch of two new karaoke contest based television game shows that were introduced in the summer line up on two competing networks. Both shows test the contestants' knowledge of popular song lyrics by having them sing karaoke from memory.
NBC's "The Singing Bee" premiered July 10 and was met by an overwhelming response, receiving the highest rankings of any new summer series in the past five years. The show was originally slated to begin this fall, but was aired early to compete with Fox's July 11 premiere of Don't Forget the Lyrics!
The launch of http://www.TheKaraokeBeat.com is expected to encounter similar fervor within the karaoke music community. TheKaraokeBeat.com is designed for karaoke music lovers of all levels, from the first-time karaoke singers to the professional "KJ" hosting in Karaoke bars and clubs.
