Looking for the ultimate list of karaoke songs for low female voices?
Well, look no further!
Karaoke is a truly awesome pastime. Not only is it a great way to let loose and have fun with a few friends, but it’s also a great way to meet new people too.
However, as we’re sure you’ve noticed, it often seems that most of the popular female-led karaoke tracks are more geared towards sopranos.
But what if you’ve got a low female voice?
Fear not! In this article, our expert team of muso-nerds have put together the ultimate list of 50+ karaoke songs for low female voices, curated by category and packed with useful information.
Feel free to skim through this piece and find the category you’re looking for, then cherry pick the tracks that take your fancy!
What You’ll Need:
- Karaoke Machine: If you’re hosting a karaoke party at home rather than going to a bar, you’ll need a karaoke machine. However, you definitely don’t need to break the bank. We’d recommend going with a low-cost portable one that connects to a TV or tablet such as this one from Amazon. Alternatively, if you’ve got a gaming console, you might be better off looking into a gaming karaoke kit such as We Sing Pop! for Xbox.
- Lighting (Optional): If you’re hosting a karaoke party, lights are a budget-friendly way of creating a real party vibe. We’d recommend some small sound-activated ones such as these ones, which offer enough light for a decent-sized family room.
- Drinks: Well…you’ve got to get that karaoke courage from somewhere…
