Journos to Sing Badly for a Good Cause

It takes courage to get up and sing – period.

Some D.C. journalists may be ruing the day they ever agreed to sing Karaoke for the upcoming event: 2010 Karaoke in the Capitol. Singers include politicians, political insiders and media. Proceeds will benefit Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, a non-profit that provides musical instruments to deserving students.

The event, hosted by The American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) Mid-Atlantic Chapter, a nonpartisan organization representing political and public affairs professionals, is on Oct. 6 at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are now on sale at for $15.

“Some of the best voices in Washington and some that you’ll never want to hear again will gather on the big stage for an evening you may want to forget but never will,” joked CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer, who is emceeing the event (and performing). Schieffer’s band, Honky Tonk Confidential will be the opening act.
