A gift of song with no time and cyberspace on Valentine’s Day
MANILA, Philippines — Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you’re probably one of the many racking their brains on what to give your special someone.
When flowers, chocolates and stuffed toys have become too unoriginal and passé, why not revive the Filipino tradition of “Harana” or the serenade?
Risingstars.ph, an online karaoke site, allows you to do just that and more.
Using a computer, a microphone, a webcam and Internet connection, you can record yourself singing your favourite love song and send it as a packaged Valentine’s Day gift of songs.
Other websites offer similar services, but what makes RisingStars different is that it has a large collection that people can sing along to.
What this means is that instead of memorizing the lyrics to a song and playing a musical instrument to accompany it, a person can simply select a song from the list, sing along karaoke style, and not worry about the music anymore, since it will be recorded along with the person’s voice.
You can also be very creative and personalize your performance in your video.
Perform a skit, choreograph a dance or dress-up like your favourite singer while belting your favourite tunes, the possibilities are endless with Risingstars.ph. You can even record multiple songs when one song is not enough to tell your beloved how special they are.
What’s even better is that you can send these special Valentine’s gifts to loved ones anywhere around the world.
So start vocalizing and practice those songs, log on to http://www.risingstars.ph, and start singing your heart out.adv
