Gleeks, closeted "High School Musical" fans, and "American Idol" rejects amongst the Houston Yelp Elite Squad took center stage for a night of karaoke!
Houston's famous Glitter Karaoke reopened its doors with a new Midtown location and welcomed the Squad – or at least those who dared – to a non-stop spectacular sing-a-long on Thursday, April 29th. Perhaps a little liquid courage was needed? Indeed. Luckily, Rain Organics Vodka provided crooners and crowds with potent cocktails stirred up with Cucumber Lime and Original flavors. (Psst. Cucumber Lime and tonic is refreshing, especially for those vocal cords!) Kudos to the first batch of brave yelpers, like Brian L, Jim M and Kristine V, who didn't need any coaxing of the cocktail to hop up on stage and work the mic like karaoke pros (partly because they are!). Yelpcorn filled nervous tummies who awaited their name to be called, but the presence of Cupcake Coach certainly was the frosting on the cake. The cupcake van lured crowds over for a helping of their fresh-made, delectable sweets and everybody's favorite: cupcakes! How 'bout that sinful German chocolate and melt-in-your-mouth red velvet?
Round of applause for all the performers who provided three hours of yelperific entertainment for the crowd, a few chuckles, and a few surprises with some pretty sensational singers (ahem, Danielle S, Warren A and Kim H, to name a few). And a huge thank you to all the sponsors: Glitter Karaoke, Rain Organics Vodka and Cupcake Coach! If you missed the night or what to hear what the Elites are yelpin' about, check out the UFC (useful, funny, cool) reviews, zany pics and conversations on Talk that are still buzzing!
