SNDF Karaoke Night Is Approaching

It’s time once again to talk music. Very bad music, performed by your industry colleagues.

Many years ago, at SND36, the SND Foundation Karaoke Night raised $4,850 — more than double its previous judging record. We came up just shy of that number at SND37 and SND38. We cannot revert to old ways now. Whether you’re attending or following along on social media, this event has become one of the most important nights of the year for the foundation.

At SND39, we hope to smash the old record. So please play along during judging — for your own tired vocal cords, for your weary coworkers, for the hundreds of awards your outlet won, or [typing through gritted teeth] FOR THE KIDS!

Multiple students are awarded travel grants to attend workshops with money raised directly during karaoke night.

Foremost, for those not in attendance, the first hour of karaoke will be available at SND’s livestream. If you can’t be there, your eyes and ears still can.

The details: Karaoke takes place on Sunday night (Feb. 25) after the judges and facilitators have finished for the day (around 9 p.m. Eastern) Want to challenge your boss/coworker/friend/enemy/significant other to a song? You can …
