Karaoke: Crutchmer did it his way, SNDF raised record funds

SND31 Karaoke Night was inspirational. It was raucous. And it was über-successful. SND Foundation president and karaoke sensation Denise Reagan led the Syracuse crowd — and numerous remote Web donors — to raise a record $3,119.25 toward educational activities.

Did you miss out on the action? Don’t worry. There’s still a big chance to step up, join in and sing for the Foundation later this year. Be the first in your SND region to agree to host a site for the 2010 Global Karaoke Event!

One of the many highlights of Sunday night (after that football was finally, mercifully over) was a unique, customized performance by Team Captain Josh Crutchmer:

Please Come to Thailand

By Josh Crutchmer
Okay. So it was karaoke and I was trying to outdo the re-writing of “You Don’t
Know How It Feels” that I did last year, and I blurted out, “What if I
re-write “Please Come to Boston” from the perspective of Tim Ball?” and it was
downhill from there.

I introduced it by saying, “I’m going to do a song about a friend of ours,
and what I want you to do is, when you figure out who I’m talking about, I
want you to donate to the SND Foundation, even if it’s a buck, and by the
look on your face I will realize whether you know who I’m talking about or

We raised a bunch for the foundation with that little ditty.

It’s good to hear about karaoke being used for positive things rather than these strange reports of people being killed when they perform “My Way” badly in the Philippines.
