Portable Speech Karaoke and Open Mic

Portable Speech Karaoke and Open Mic


A portable showcase for the expression of ones own talent and/or the opportunity to orate a provided famous speech, poem or quote by an influencial person of our nation. This medium of interaction allowed people to express themselves as well as make relatable the words of a President through their own oratorical flare. It was a catalyst to break everyday people out of their shells and gave them the spotlight to encourage, inspire, evoke thought or bring laughter to others and themselves through random public performance, indoors or out.
