Another Reason for Routing Your Flight Through IAH
This just in from the Houston Chronicle:
Karaoke has landed at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, just in time for the holiday season. Now you can clear security, step up to the microphone and belt out your travel frustrations by singing the Beatles' Nowhere Man or Help! Or, if you're not such a Grinch, you can croon Home for the Holidays or Sentimental Journey.
For the first time, the Houston Airport System is adding karaoke to its menu of holiday music entertainment. The first session is this afternoon, behind security between Terminals D and E.
"During the holidays we have a lot of our novice travelers," such as large families and older couples, [Caroline] Schneider 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.
