How to give a memorable Karaoke performance of "My Heart Will Go On"

As the Whuffaoke ( crew has been traveling across the U.S., performing in cities night after night, I think I have some room to give advice on Karaoke performances. Granted, I don't always rock out to every song I sing, but when I grab the mic for "My Heart Will Go On," you can bet that you're in for a treat.

Here are the ways to give a memorable Karaoke performance of "My Heart Will Go On"
  1. Know when to be soft and when to belt it out...and make sure you move the mic away from your mouth a little when belting, just in case. Don't want to blow any ear drums.
  2. Do lots of reaching out to the know, like Rose did to Jack. Make them feel like they are part of the performance.
  3. If you have the chance, use a cordless mic and move around the crowd. Imagine you're on a ship big enough to be the Titanic. Engage with the audience...cuddle up to them, have them stand behind you for the famous "Jack and Rose at the front of the ship" scene...arms out, just don't move the mic from your mouth.
  4. When belting the "You're.....HERE...." part at the end, stand up on something, a table, chair, bar, speaker...whatever is available. You need to be "the King (or Queen) of the world!"
  5. As you finish, make sure you know the final quote between Jack and Rose from Titanic. This isn't in the Karaoke lyrics, so let me help you out:
Jack :Promise me now Rose and never let go of that promise.

Rose: I promise.

Jack: Never let go...

Rose: I'll never let go jack, I'll never let go.
I promise.

Follow all of this, and your heart (as well as the memory of your performance) will ALWAYS go on!

And if you can sing it from the top of an RV in the middle of Manhattan, even better!

Based on how much fun I had simply reading that, I can't really fathom what a live experience would be like!! = ) We'll have to get to it on your next LA trip, for sure.

Oh man, I loved the huge cheese fest that was the Titanic movie, and even moreso, the huge cheese fest that is Celine Dion. #2 really speaks out to me, #4 is a given, and #5 is just EPIC.

Please, somebody YouTube @khartline performing this!
