UB to offer hot cocoa, holiday karaoke

Roberto Hodge, Multicultural Editor

For the University Board’s final Mainstage event of the semester, it will host a Cocoa and Karaoke night at 7 p.m. Wednesday in 7th Street Underground.

Tylen Elliott, the Mainstage coordinator, said those who participate in the event will be able to sing holiday songs with hot chocolate and cookies. He said anyone who comes to perform is encouraged to wear holiday attire while participating.

Elliott said this is the first time the event is happening as far as he knows, and he is hoping for a good turnout.

Normally, UB would have some sort of event with popcorn, but Elliot wanted to do something different by having a relaxing event.

The goal is to have a large amount of students at the event and allow them to take a breather before finals and relax enjoying the end of the semester, Elliott said.

Elliott said UB has had a successful turnout for all of it events this year, with this one being similar to the first event, which also featured karaoke.

He added Vegas was Mainstage’s largest event of the semester.

He said Vegas was an enjoyable event, but stressful to put together, so Cocoa Karaoke is a way for students to wind down.

Because of Vegas’s success, the event will be hosted again next year, Elliott said.

Cocoa Karaoke is also one of the holiday-themed events put on this year, earlier UB had Nightmare on 7th Street.

“They’re fun and they appeal to a larger diverse audience,” Elliott said.

Elliott said the event is important for students because it is a way for them to showcase their singing talent and connect with others in a fun environment.

The event is free to everyone with students being able to have hot chocolate and cookies for treats while they perform.
