Happy New Year from KROD! That’s the theme this month– the new year, whatever that means to you. You can find me over at Kandace’s One Red Wall.
I have the privilege of hosting the wonderful Alexandra of The Tsaritsa Sez. She’s hosted me a couple of times and I’m happy to have her here! Tsa, it turns out, doesn’t just write a great blog, but also great hip-hop lyrics, and here she is performing one of her original songs. I’m quite impressed! I’ll let her take it from here.
Hi all, and Happy Karaoke Day! I feel very lucky to be hosted today for Karaoke Ring of Death by the lovely Katie. My name is Alexandra and I have a little blog called The Tsaritsa Sez. I also help run this karaoke show along with Jes and Kanriah, and we would love to have you join us next month for more singing (and perhaps drinking) in front of the camera.
This month our theme is “Hello 2012, Goodbye 2011,” and so I have chosen to perform a
song that I wrote called “Fall Back / Stand Up” which brushes off negativity and calls for unity among the disenfranchised. I spent the last 18 months unemployed and applying for every job that I could find. I also got creative and started making my own work via blogging and freelance writing, and became involved with the 99% Movement. The song declares that we need to take the power into our own hands, and the only way to do that is with action. I hope that you like it and perhaps find it inspiring.
