APB Kareoke Night Allows Students to Embrace the Spotlight

Shelby Dodds preparing herself to sing Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”.

The Wilmington tradition of karaoke night came to the campus on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. Students enjoyed a brilliant night of sing-a-long, making the memories they will look back on fondly.

APB hosted the event in The Underground, setting up lighting displays to create a wholesome and party-like atmosphere.

One of the students who attended the event, Shelby Dodds, a junior, commented that her favorite part was “being yourself in a way that others might not see you. You can be free in the music, whether it is your favorite song or a song you barely know.”

Many participants went outside of their comfort zone, while others embraced the spotlight. All kinds of songs and genres were sung, from modern-day rap music to the High School Musical soundtrack.

Jessica Fair, a junior, enjoys the simple activities like karaoke night, saying, “I love being able to hang out with my friends and let loose. I enjoy having a presence on campus and letting other people know I can have fun.”

When asked about what other activities can be instituted in order to enhance the campus atmosphere, both Dodds and Fair agree that a talent show would do just that.

“I would love to see a talent show so we could see students from all backgrounds show the campus their special talent, whether it be singing, dancing, magic, or even a really cool math problem. I just love watching people show off their passions!” remarked Dodds.

APB will continue to host many exciting events throughout the semester and year, so keep a look out for them, and be ready to make some memories!
