SingShot is an online talent platform centered on singing / karaoke. Basically, if you have a PC or Mac, a broadband connection, and a microphone, you can record your own version of popular songs (we provide the music and the lyrics) that can then be saved to our servers and listened to, rated, and commented on by the world. There are already thousands of great recordings on the site, ranging from great to cute to funny (see the links at the end of this email for examples).
