Let’s all sing the praises of karaoke

Who loves karaoke? Whether you prefer it in open bars or behind closed doors, there’s nothing more fun than belting out tunes with good drinks and good friends. What you might not know, though, is that karaoke has origins from across the Pacific. Karaoke was actually invented in Japan, and the word itself is Japanese for “empty orchestra.” In this clip from CBS Sunday Morning, you’ll meet the inventor of karaoke, and learn why this pastime is still so popular around the world years later.
