No matter where you are or the time of day, crooning along to your favorite tunes is a snap.

UpSNAP, Inc. (NASDAQ UPSN:OB), the premier provider of free mobile search and streaming mobile audio entertainment, today announced that is teaming up with Sound Choice to offer mobile karaoke.

“With a simple text message and no complicated downloads, mobile phone users can sing and dance along to their favorite Sound Choice Karaoke Track,” said Tony Philipp, UpSNAP’s CEO. “No matter where you are or the time of day, crooning along to your favorite tunes is a snap.”

Mobile phone users can text message “Karaoke” to UpSNAP’s shortcode 27627 (2SNAP) and then just sing away to their choice of thousands of song titles from the Sound Choice catalog, which includes: “Like a Rolling Stone” by Bob Dylan, “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks; “Santeria” by Sublime; “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor; and “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot.

“You don't have to be a star to enjoy singing. Everyone is born with an innate desire to sing, and this should be encouraged, not suppressed, regardless of ability level,” said Derek Slep, president of Sound Choice.

Available on nearly all 210 million mobile phones in the United States, the mobile karaoke service is free for the first 30 days and will then be only $1.99 per month thereafter. Carrier minutes and text messaging charges may be incurred depending on the network operator.
