CBS’s Bob Schieffer. Politico‘s Dave Catanese. CNN’s Brianna Keilar and Dan Lothian. Roll Call‘s Shira Toeplitz. TWT‘s Peter Parisi.
These are some of the boldface names you’ll see on stage in two weeks when Washington’s bravest journalists take to the stage to belt out a song.
It’s the one night each year when Democratic and Republican operatives, Hill staffers, and the media who cover their diminishing bipartisanship join forces to sing badly for a good cause. Karaoke in the Capital, sponsored by the American Association of Political Consultants — with some proceeds benefiting Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation — returns to Washington D.C.’s Rock and Roll Hotel on Wednesday, October 19th. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at KaraokeInTheCapital.com. Doors open at 7 p.m.
For those interested in singing, the slots fill up fast. Last year’s stellar performances included FNC’s Ed Henry (then at CNN) singing Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Slate’s Dave Weigel’s unforgettable Elvis impersonation. Write firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
