Did you know this?
Roberto del Rosario, a Filipino inventor, holds the patent for the "Karaoke machine?"
Pronounced, "Vid-Joh-Keh", Videoke actually means "video karaoke". It is a word used primarily in the Philippines, but is basically "Karaoke" anywhere else in the world. Videoke machines look like video game arcade machines. During holidays and birthdays, local Filipinos will rent these videoke machines to use at their homes. Then it's on to loud, unashamed sintunado (harsh and out of tune) singing all day and all night. In most Filipino parties, you can almost always expect two things: force feeding and videoke.
Filipinos love videoke so much that you will even find someone singing AT THE SUPERMARKET!! Check out this video below--AMAZING SINGER!!
