Christina Kokonis-Viggers had headed to a wholesale store called Sam’s Club with her friend to get some bits. But then she stumbled across a karaoke machine. Christina looked at her friend, Amanda Lasher.
Without a moment’s hesitation, Christina began singing on the karaoke machine. However, Amanda was left stunned when she heard Christina’s voice – as were the other shoppers. Immediately Amanda got out her phone to record her.
Amanda filmed Christina’s impromptu performance on a karaoke machine
Christina plugged her phone into the karaoke machine and started playing the song “Maybe This Time” from the musical Cabaret.
The moment she started singing, shoppers stopped and stared. Christina was feeling the music and Amanda was loving the performance.
“Afterwards, she got like this great applause. That was amazing.”
As soon as they left the store, Amanda posted the video on her Facebook. Though Amanda believed in Christina’s vocal skills, Christina wasn’t so sure.
“She said, ‘I’m going to put it on Facebook. This is going to blow up.’ And I said no.”
The video has been viewed over 14 million times. Everybody was impressed by Christina’s voice. Who would have thought that a simple karaoke machine in a store would give somebody a viral performance?!
Hopefully, Christina follows her passions and continues singing for crowds – supermarket or not! In fact, I think Christina should be performing gigs in bars and shows.
