Leaving on a jet plane? Is the waiting the hardest part? Try airport karaoke! Houston's Bush International Airport is setting up karaoke booths for travelers, just in time for the holidays. One was to be up and running on Thursday afternoon, airport officials said.
For the past two years, officials have invited choirs and bands from high schools and churches to perform at Bush and Hobby airports during December. Karaoke seemed the next logical step, said Caroline Schneider, assistant airport manager for customer service.
"During the holidays, we have a lot of our novice travelers," she said. "We thought while they are waiting, they can just sing a song."
Aspiring vocalists can choose from hundreds of song titles, Schneider said. Small prizes will be given to the singers.
