Karaoke Singer On Key

HARRISBURG, PA - At a company Christmas party, 43-year-old Jerry D'Amato stunned co-workers by drinking heavily then singing karaoke on key and in tune. "We almost died," said Sharon Adelmen, age 29, who works with D'Amato at Jamieson Brothers Furniture Factory. "Someone had a bottle at work, so we were half-bagged before we even left. Once we got to the club [Sing Out Karaoke Bar], we ordered Rolling Rock short drafts with bourbon kickers. Everyone was sloppy drunk." D'Amato wowed the crowd with an 80s medley, starting with A-ha's "Take on Me," transitioning smoothly to "Mr Roboto" by Styx, and finishing strong with Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." Adelman added, "Then he hit on me - gross. But other than that, Jerry really cracked out some tunes. Loud and good. You don't hear that a lot in karaoke."
