Style File: Vinyl & Kai
If you think you've got the pipes to be a star here's your chance, at least for a few minutes anyway. 7's Belkys Nerey takes us to a new place that's all about music and food in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- From American Idol to Glee, a lot of us like to think we could be the next super star on stage.
Johnny Flex: "I'm a professional shower singer."
Here's your chance. You can belt out songs like a pro at Sing or Sink Karaoke at the new Vinyl and Kai Bar in South Beach.
Chris Barron, Vinyl & Kai, Owner: "Vinyl and Kai really just means music and food."
Chris Barron: "Every Tuesday night we do karaoke from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m."
During this weekly sing fest you can go online and pick from about 300,000 karaoke songs.
Chris Barron: "Basically anything you want they can play it."
A lot of people show up to show off their singing skills. You've got your experts.
Shane Valentine: "I love to sing. I've been singing my whole life. I'm the Pat Benatar of this generation."
Those who really know how to work the crowd.
Johnny Flex: "I wanted to do something that got people excited. You have to read the crowd. They needed a little pick me up."
And of course the, ummm, not so serious singers.
Tuesday night is also ladies night, where ladies drink free from nine 'til the clock strikes midnight, which is good if you need some liquid courage to sing.
Angela Espinosa: "I think it might happen today because it's ladies night and we get free drinks. So, this is ladies night and it's Angie on the mic."
So go sing your heart out, who knows who might be listening.
Vinyl & Kai also has live music several nights a week.
