Over the next few weeks, People’s Post sister publication, TygerBurger will speak to a different star of the much-loved TV soapie Suidooster about their karaoke experiences in the lead-up to our karaoke competition.This week we chat with Lauren Joseph who plays Zoë October in the soapie.

Do you sing karaoke?

“Oh yes! I am a karaoke junkie. Any opportunity I get, I go to Manila Bar and sing my heart out, or even at family and social gatherings, everyone knows when it comes to a certain time of the evening, YouTube streaming comes out to play.”

What is your favourite song?

“My go-to song is always ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey and anything Coldplay; oh, and let’s not forget ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper.”

Have you ever embarrassed yourself?

“I’m not the best singer, hey! One time I went up on stage at Manila Bar and performed ‘The Scientist’ by Coldplay and it required a low note and let’s just say I didnt hit any note. I forgot to mention this song came up directly after Craig Lucas sang something so obviously the crowd went crazy, and after I sang it was just a big no-no, but I gave it my all and in the end it was a jol.”

Have you ever listened to someone at a karaoke and thought this person belongs on stage?

“Yes, all the time! There is so much talent out here in South Africa that is not recognised or even perused. Sometimes all I can do is stand in awe and cheer them on.”

Entry to TygerBurger’s Karaoke Like a Star competition closes on Sunday 17 February.

To enter, send a short audition video to 076 939 6536 and show us what you can do.
